Bulgarian caretaker Government replaces 7 more regional governors because of their desire to join party lists

Sofia. The Bulgarian caretaker Government will replace 7 more regional governors because of their desire to join party lists, said Council of Ministers spokesperson Irina Belcheva in relation to the preparations for the upcoming parliamentary elections in the country, a reporter of FOCUS News Agency reported.
“The work with regional governors is very important. That is why, as of the next sitting of the Council of Ministers, PM Ognyan Gerdzhikov is incorporating the practice of two regional governors to attend in rotation, and afterwards meet with the PM and the cabinet in order to discuss the election preparations, and also to announce what the situation is in the region they are responsible for,” Beleva explained, and recalled that half of the regional governors were replaced a week ago. “The PM did not intend to make more changes with regional governors. In the past week, requests for unpaid leave started arriving from regional governors because of their desire to join the party lists at the upcoming parliamentary elections,” she commented. According to her, this would call into question the fairness and transparency of the elections in these regions. “That is why there will be 7 regional governors replaced – those in Vidin, Gabrovo, Stara Zagora, Smolyan, Pazardzhik, Pleven, and Pernik. There is no way to have honest election if the regional governor is in the list of some of the parties,” she also said.

PM Ognyan Gerdzhikov: Half of the regional governors have to be replaced because we cannot remain indifferent to signals about improper behaviour

Sofia. The reason for half of the Bulgarian regional governors being changed were signals received about their improper behaviour, the record of the last caretaker cabinet meeting on February 7 states.
“You know that at the very beginning we reached the conclusion that, in order to ensure honest, democratic, and free election, we will have to change regional governors for whom there is information that they might prevent such elections taking place. Of course, the decisions were made very carefully, considering different reasons, as any attempt to change all regional governors would present a certain bias, which we should not allow,” caretaker PM Ognyan Gerdzhikov points out. “On the other hand, we cannot stay indifferent to signals received about improper behaviour of certain regional governors. Considering this, by taking into account the different reasons and signals, it led to half of the regional governors having to be changed,” PM Gerdzhikov adds.
