Bulgarian Deputy-PM: 'It's Fun to Work in Times of Protests'
Ongoing protests in Bulgaria show a positive trend in civic participation, argued Bulgarian Deputy-PM and Justice Minister Zinaida Zlatanova.
"I am infinitely surprised that 25 years after democratic changes in Bulgaria we are surprised at this type of making a citizen's stand," commented Zlatanova for Darik Radio.
"I think this trend is wonderful. I think we work better in such an environment," added she.
According to Zlatanova, protests stimulated public debate on a number of important issues, such as the judicial system and the draft program for EU funds absorption for the upcoming programing period.
"This is the way for Bulgaria to change gears, to speed up and to move on like that," said the Deputy-PM.
