Bulgaria: Radev to veto texts of new Interior Ministry bill

Today, Bulgarian President Rumen Radev is expected to veto changes to the law of the Ministry of the Interior, which provides for the creation of security structures in parallel with the Interior Ministry, and will announce the logic behind his decision.

“I am the president and I strictly adhere to what is written in the constitution; I will veto texts of the law on the Ministry of the Interior on June 22, but for now the agenda of society is completely different”, Bulgarian president said a few days ago. Radev announced his intention to veto the changes on June 16.

According to the Bulgarian President, any decision in the field of national security must be determined by clear criteria of efficiency, effectiveness and security. Radev added that creating the new structure in the Interior Ministry would be a blow to the state and not so much to the president. The head of state pointed out that the changes in the law do not meet the criteria of efficiency and effectiveness./ibna
