EC Due to Issue First CVM Report on Bulgaria to Cover 1 Year, 3 Govts
The European Commission's monitoring report on Bulgaria, due on Wednesday, will cover for the first time a one-year period in which three governments have succeeded.
Normally the reports on the country's progress under the Cooperation and Verification Mechanism (CVM) cover a 6-month period.
This has prompted experts to say that Bulgarian authorities are more relaxed about this report since the political responsibility will be split among key political players.
The cabinet of Boyko Borissov resigned in February last year following boisterous public protests in Sofia and several other cities over the price of electricity.
A caretaker government, led by Marin Raykov took charge until early elections were held on 12 May, installing a minority government led by Plamen Oresharski.
