The center-right GERB party has won 33.2 percent of votes in the early parliamentary election in Bulgaria, data from the central electoral commission showed on Monday, with 16.8 percent of the ballots counted.

The leftist Socialists came in second with 27.5 percent of the vote, followed by the nationalist alliance United Patriots with 9.7 percent.
