Party of the Independent Bulgarians was founded by NKFV. It succeeds the Boycott Party. It's president NKFV decided to drop the Boycott project and instead of making a new party, used his old one to launch the Party of the Independent Bulgarians. The party was founded with the idea to be an alternative to two opposing coalitions that existed at the time.
The Party of the Independent Bulgarians was founded on December 9, 2010 by NKFV. At that time Bulgaria was shaken up by the diplomatic conflict with Iran and Phoenix. The Party took a pro-EDEN stance, believing that Bulgaria was betrayed by her allies. PIB declares itself against BNF, which it considers a pseudo-nationalist party. After Bulgaria takes a sharp turn in its foreign policy, when the president SturmmannIYI proposes MPPs with various EDEN countries on December 16, 2010, PIB supports the change in alliance, although it criticizes the president for not observing the Constitution. The party is against any alliances with Macedonia, Turkey and Serbia.
On January 7, PIB officially declared it support for Bulgaria becoming a member of the EDEN alliance. Although the party was growing and managed to get 11 congressman after the elections in the end of the month, it didn't nominate its own presidential candidate but instead supported the nomination of Podkrepa. Because of some mistakes the new president made, he was not supported for a second term (although he managed to win it anyway).
During that time PIB started several initiatives. The position „Agitator“ was created - those people wrote the „Informational Bulletin“, which informed the party members about the things happening in the party. The voluntary members fee was created which was used to help the younger party members. The party created the so called "Blockers" - people who participate in the congress election in regions where there aren't enough candidates to fill the quota. This allows the party to control who gets nominated for the elections. Another initiative was the competition "Journalist of PIB". It didn't gather much interest and wasn't done for a second time. The party forum was created to serve as a method of communication alongside the party chat. The March term of the congress for the PIB congressman was marked with inactivity. For the first time a member of the party was expelled.
On April 7, 2011 the paramilitary unit of PIB - the Army of Independent Bulgarians (AIB) was created.
After four consecutive mandates as a Party President NKFV retired and was replaced by McG Reborn who won the elections on April 15, 2011. After the Party elections for the first time in the party history the party's Board of Directors was chosen on the party forum. In May 2011 PIB started a donation campaign, which gave 100 health to the new players. The campaign was active on the 1st, 10th and 20th of every month.
In June the intern campaign was started. It's goal was to train the young players to became a part of the political life of the country.
In July the presidential candidate form the party - NKFV - was elected. On July 20, 2011 PIB unanimously supported a peace treaty with Turkey. However the congress votes against it. It brings many negatives towards the party, which is criticized for the terms of the proposed treaty. During NKFV's term a reform was carried out in the army boosting its efficiency.
In the autumn of 2011 nothing of notice happened, and the party fell into a lethargy after BDP dethroned it from the number one spot by party members.
In January 2012 traptukan was nominated and elected for president. A referendum was started on whether Turkey should join EDEN. 60% were against. Bulgaria defended its position in front of EDEN. Negotiations were made with Ukraine about the rented regions. The organization for a Baby-boom was started.
In February the intern program was reintroduced. At that time the relations between Bulgaria and EDEN were very tense. Initially PIB wanted to stay in EDEN but after the alliance High command revoked the decision to stop Turkey's trial period, the party decides that Bulgaria should leave EDEN. Even then PIB is against MPPs with ONE and prefers for Bulgaria to found a new alliance.
In March the competition "Young Journalist" was started again. During the Baby-boom in April the party gave away about 100 000 HP for the young players. The campaign was dome two more times as and additional 200 000 and 40 000 HP were given.
In June the ambassadors from PIB show high activity. During the dispute about the congress forum, the party publicly condemned the actions of the congress and the lack of debate. The party is preparing new initiatives which it will announce after the parliamentary elections.
On 11th October 2012, the party was officially dissolved.
