Three million Bulgarians buy privatization vouchers

The Center for Mass Privatization announced on June 17 that just over 3 million people - or 48.7 percent of those eligible - have bought privatization vouchers, Bulgarian media reported. Of those who bought vouchers in the second round, roughly two-thirds paid the full price of 500 leva ($3.50) for one voucher, whose nominal value is 25,000 leva. The rest paid the reduced price of 100 leva intended for pensioners, students, and soldiers.
