History

The party was established in 2013 by popular Bulgarian punk and ska musician Svetoslav Vitkov just prior to the parliamentary election and achieved relative success by winning 1,34% of the total vote This result placed it as the 13th largest party in the country, with just a few weeks of campaigning and little to no financial support

The party became the first one to open its list for the European Parliament election in 2014 to all people willing to participate Following a series of events, including public debates on European policies, a lie-detector test, and Facebook voting, the party announced its 17 candidates, with most of them having never been involved in politics before The top two candidates were well-known - Bulgarian Academy of Sciences member and activist Hristo Lafchiev, and political scientist and renowned football fan Aleksandar Alekov The party soon became known for its provocative, fun and socially open rhetoric, including penalty shoot-outs with other politicians and scandalous video clips

At the European Parliament elections in May 2014, People's Voice placed 9th with 1,002% of the vote In the parliamentary elections held in October 2014, the party 37,335 votes, enough to earn it 10th place with 114% of the vote

People's Voice attempted to enter the 2016 presidential election, initially opting for a coalition with The Greens Their candidate for president was Svetoslav Vitkov, while his running-mate was Ivan Velkov, a Deputy Chairman of the municipal councilor in Sofia However, on October 5, 2016 their registration in the elections was denied due to an insufficient number of signatures gathered prior to the final deadline for doing so

At the 2017 parliamentary election, People's Voice entered a coalition with the Reformist Bloc, with Vitkov announced as the top candidate for the 25th electoral district, one of three that comprise the capital Sofia
