Bulgaria's long-term interest rate for assessing convergence among EU members edged down 0.2pps m/m to 3.4% in December 2013 , the central bank said. On an annual basis, the rate remained unchanged. Up until November the yield on Bulgaria's long-term debt had been rising since June when anti-government protests began shortly after the snap elections, which put in power a socialist-led government. The lasting protests had a negative effect on the perceived political stability in the country.
