Fence at Border with Turkey Will be Built Without Public Procurement
Bulgarian members of parliament from the four parties constituting the ruling coalition, tabled amendments to the Public Procurement Act in the National Assembly on Thursday.
This comes a day after Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov urged members of parliament to quickly amend legislation in order to ensure the construction of the fence at the border with Turkey, electronic daily Dnevnik reports.
The proposed amendments will allow for the protective facility to be constructed without the need to initiate a public procurement procedure, as the fence will be considered an object of national security.
The tabled amendments were announced by the co-chairman of the Patriotic Front (PF) Valeri Simeonov at a briefing.
The continued construction of the fence was one of the Patriots' demands to support the cabinet and was even included in the programme declaration, signed by the coalition partners.
Simeonov did not disclose further details on the amendments.
According to the estimates presented by Borisov on Wednesday, the wired fence will cost a total of BGN 90 million and will have a length of 82 kilometres.
Its aim is to reduce the pressure exerted on Bulgaria and the European Union (EU) by migrants coming from the Near East.
