Commenting article: Bulgarian PM Resigned to Expose Enemies - Interior Min

Bulgaria's Prime Minister Boyko Borisov has resigned in order to expose his political opponents, Borisov's closest aide, Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov has said.

"You know how ridiculous were the claims in the recent months of the opposition that the current government would organize the least democratic elections in Bulgaria in the past 23 years," Tsvetanov said before Tuesday's meeting of Bulgaria's Consultative National Security Council, referring to the Bulgarian Socialist Party and the ethnic Turkish Movement for Rights and Freedoms (DPS).

"That's why the PM made this decision – to resign in order to terminate these mean speculations on part of our political opponents," Tsvetanov added.

So Borisov quit his responsibilities to his country in-order to play political games with his detractors? What a fool. Bulgaria deserves better. Now that Bulgaria sees what kind of man he actually is, the people should be greatful he quit!

Hey commie RAT, can you elaborate more on "What kind of person Borisov is"?

Seedy - 26 Feb 2013 // 16:14:46

So if we deserve a better leader, just where should we be looking for him, Ratty?

Dear Sveto and Seedy:

First of all, I am the furthest thing from a Commie!

His quitting shows that when times were tough and a real leader is needed, he chose to quit. not what a real leader does.

I leave your next leader for the BG public to decide. I would hope the next leaders come from outside the current group that just keep "making the rounds".

Glad to hear you're not a Commie, Ratty - we've had more than a belly-full of them and their "Socialist" alter-egos.

"Cometh the hour, cometh man": Borisov certainly isn't what we need in the long-term but he IS perhaps the only one who stands a chance of preparing the ground for the more delicate political souls who will follow. However, given the well-deserved reputations of "real" politicians everywhere for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory I doubt that his successors will cover themselves in glory....
