History

The party was founded on January 7, 2017, by Hristo Ivanov, who served as Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Justice in the caretaker Bliznashki Cabinet from August 6, 2014 until November 7, 2014 He then served as Minister of Justice in the Second Borisov Cabinet from November 7, 2014 until his resignation on December 9, 2015, submitted in protest of failed attempts at judicial reform At its first meeting, Ivanov outlined the party's three main priorities - "to ensure the rule of law and efficient and accessible justice; to accelerate the pace of growth of the country; and the fight against systemic poverty and for raising the standards of living"

According to the Sofia Globe, “Ivanov did something few Bulgarian politicians have done before him: He stood up for his principles"

On January 11, 2017, Ivanov was elected as the party's chairman, together with an Executive Council of 13 parliamentary deputies Two days later Yes, Bulgaria! submitted their registration documents for the upcoming parliamentary elections at the end of March In the following weeks, several political formations approached the new party in order to form a possible coalition for the elections, including The Greens, DEOS and the Bulgaria for Citizens Movement Radan Kanev's Democrats for a Strong Bulgaria, which had previously split from the Reformist Bloc in November 2016, offered to unite with Ivanov's party In response, Yes, Bulgaria! announced they will attempt to run independently, with Ivanov saying that “it is fair to establish a long-term connection with the voter, to have our own image," thus rejecting the offer from Kanev's now re-branded 'New Republic' coalition

On January 30, the Sofia Municipal Court approved the registration of Yes, Bulgaria! as a political party, but three subsequent official complaints against that decision meant the leadership was forced to look for a possible coalition in order to make the deadline for registration On February 8, Hristo Ivanov announced that an agreement to form a coalition between Yes, Bulgaria!, The Greens and DEOS had been reached, and registration would be possible after the collection of over 20,000 signatures in one day All three complaints were later withdrawn, and despite further appeals to the Central Electoral Commission, the coalition was cleared for participation on February 15

According to Novinite, “The Greens are Bulgaria's most active environmentalist party, while DEOS is a liberal organization focusing on the "rule of law", active civic participation, and minorities”

At the 2017 elections, Yes, Bulgaria won a total of 101,217 votes, or 296% of all votes cast, leaving it as the 7th largest formation, but without parliamentary representation In Sofia's three constituencies, the party gained a total of 777% of all votes cast, coming in at 4th place, less than 1,000 votes behind 3rd placed United Patriots In total, more than 70,000 votes almost 70% came from Sofia, Plovdiv, and Varna, as well as from Bulgarians abroad
