Bulgarian Socialist MP: Changes Are Needed for Parliament to Work
Bulgaria's National Assembly is not working effectively as MPs are incapable of guaranteeing a quorum once again on Friday, according to Yanaki Stoilov, an MP of the Bulgarian Socialist Party.
The Socialist MP explained that political and organizational changes in the way the Bulgarian Parliament functions must be made in order its work to be improved.
“We can consider changes in the regulations of the National Assembly to make sure a quorum would be provided, but I reckon that this is not the main measure. The essential measures taken should be in political and organizational sense”, announced Stoilov.
For yet another day, the Bulgarian Parliament failed to start working Friday due to lack of quorum.
113 Members of the Parliament registered in plenary hall while the required minimum is 120 of a total of 240.
Lawmakers from the formerly-ruling, opposition center-right Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria party, GERB, did not register once again, prompting Parliament Speaker Mihail Mikov to announce the parliamentary session will not be held Friday and to adjourn the MPs.
