Bulgarian Prime Minister Proposed to Change the Constitution
OREANDA-NEWS. Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov made an address to the nation, during which he announced plans to change the country’s constitution. The speech of the head of the cabinet sounded against the backdrop of massive anti-government protests that have been going on in the country for 37 days.
“The time has come for responsibility and decisiveness. It is time not only for a change in the political system, but also for a reset of the state. The need to reset the political model cannot be postponed any longer,” the politician said.
Borisov noted that the need to adopt a new constitution for the Republic of Bulgaria is a topic that has been actively discussed for many years. The current constitution was adopted in a different political period, and without changing it, it is impossible to respond to modern challenges, the Prime Minister explained.Decrease in the number of deputies of the national parliament, limitation of the mandate of the general prosecutor, chairmen of the Supreme Court of Cassation to 5 years (currently 7 years), termination of the work of the Supreme Judicial Council, and limitation of the powers of the minister of justice are among the proposed changes.
