The daily Duma is the successor to the former communist propaganda paper Rabotnichesko delo, which was closed down in 1990. Duma then became the press organ of the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP), which had formerly been the communist party. As such the paper played an important role in Bulgaria in the first years after the collapse of communism, but with the rise of the independent press it quickly lost its influence. Duma has been closed down twice since 1998 and gone through several changes of ownership. Although it sees itself as an independent left-leaning daily its closeness to the Socialist Party is obvious.
