''I read in a website that we are opening a new museum with old paintings. So, now, I have told Vezhdi [Rashidov], let this new wing have only new paintings, maybe even my paintings, by new younger artists,'' stated Bulgarian Prime Minister Boiko Borisov at the opening of the new art gallery in Sofia, Square 500.

His joke was also a reference to a statement made by Culture Minister Vezhdi Rashidov back in 2011. Then the minister said that PM ''Borisov is like a Picasso - drawing paintings during the sittings of the Council of Ministers.''
