Prof. Aleksandar Marinov, political scientist: Borisov 3 cabinet did nothing special in first 100 days11 August 2017 | 14:47 | FOCUS News Agency
The government focused on distributing positions and areas of influence. In domestic policy, Malinov sees nothing concrete with the exception of two-three loudly proclaimed promises, such as the increase of minimum pensions. Several initial moves were intended to create the impression that the government was working, then everything was subjected to the Prime Minister’s personal appearances, he said.
The philosophy and main priorities of important ministries cannot yet be seen. In addition, the government published its programme at the time when its 100 days were to be evaluated. "Retroactively, we see some things included in the programme in order to be evaluated as done," he said.
The way the government’s work will affect the Bulgarian EU Council presidency will be assessed in the near future. The signing of the friendship treaty with Macedonia was a step in the right direction, but subsequent developments should also be monitored, namely if the approach in the preparation and signing of the treaty will lead to future problems, Malinov said. He added that until now the government has not taken serious steps to resolve any particular issue of the domestic or foreign policy.
