The Bulgarian Constitution of 1879 proclaims universal suffrage, which corresponds to the modern European ideas of the late nineteenth century and must guarantee the rights and freedoms of citizens. However, the members of the Constituent National Assembly also lay the foundations for limiting passive voting rights. For various reasons, it is believed that certain groups of people will not be eligible for election as Members of Parliament. This is also the beginning of a steady increase of the requirements that the voters have to meet. This happens constantly and regularly, with identical discussions and repetition of arguments. Despite this clearly outlined trend, however, the restrictions on the rights and freedoms of citizens in the field of passive electoral law are never harshly breached.
