Stanimir Florov, former head of the Interior Ministry’s Chief Directorate "Combating Organized Crime" (GDBOP), has been nominated for the post of Director of the Automobile Administration Executive Agency (AAEA).

Florov’s nomination was submitted to the Council of Ministers by Transport Minister Ivaylo Moskovski, who explained that Florov had the capacity to curb ongoing corrupt practices at the entity.

The Director of the AAEA is appointed by the Prime Minister, according to reports of Nova TV.
