Leader of DB: We will work to make Bulgarians Abroad feel Equal Citizens no matter where they are
We all need to realize that it is good to pave the way for something new. Besides, it is good to remember sometimes that one can take a step aside. For example, I declare that I will not be a minister.
This was stated by the leader of "Democratic Bulgaria" Hristo Ivanov from the rostrum of the parliament during the opening of the 47th National Assembly.
"A lot has been said about the challenges and crises we are facing. I want to say a few words about hope. Because it seems to me that at the end of this year, with so many twists and turbulences, we are reaching a point where we can allow ourselves to talk about hope. Hope will be a good start to our work together here. Bulgaria has great grounds for hope. Yes, we are in a difficult situation, but beyond that, recovery on new paths allows Bulgaria to greatly shorten that path which has always separated us from the most developed societies. We must set such a goal to make a leap in our development," he said.
Hristo Ivanov said that since the DB is "smaller, they will rely on hope":
"We want to contribute to the formation of a new democratic majority that will set a new page in development. I hope that in this parliament we can do more work. Every government must be aware of its limitations and whenever power is given and used, We must remember this, we believe in institutions and procedures, we believe in memory, we will not forget that our ideology starts from the negation of the totalitarian regime, we cannot create democracy without remembering the opposite, because it easily raises its head and brings it back," he added.
According to Hristo Ivanov, the country is in a special moment.
"Those of us who were on the streets and protesting until recently know how important it is to make judicial reform. The prosecutor's office needs to be modernized - there should be a law in Bulgaria that every Bulgarian can rely on. I think there is hope that this time "We can do this. We need to make constitutional reform, especially as far as the prosecutor's office and the SJC are concerned - we all know that," he said.
He explained that the democratic unification will take care of the preservation of the Bulgarian natural heritage and economic transformation, which will achieve a new quality of life in Bulgaria.
"We will work to make Bulgarians abroad feel equal citizens no matter where they are. We will support a serious investment program in terms of managing the economic consequences of the coronavirus pandemic," Ivanov said in his speech.
According to him, the first thing that needs to be done is to return the children to schools.
"On the issue of North Macedonia, we must defend the Bulgarian national interest and the Bulgarian truth about history, but we must find a way to be part of the great European family together," Ivanov said.
He ended his speech with the words:
I wish you success, because I must tell you that Bulgaria is the other name of hope! The hope to have a prosperous country, to leave something good to our children. In the name of this hope, I want to wish you "Good luck today!"
