Commenting article: Bulgarian Conservatives Reveal Scandalous Info about Top GERB Member

Bulgaria's conservative Order, Law and Justice party (RZS) held a briefing Friday at party headquarters dedicated to scandalous revelations about properties of the Chair of the Sofia municipal council, Andrey Ivanov.

Ivanov, who is from the ruling center-right Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria (GERB) party, was a long-time police officer. In 2007, he became a municipal councilman, on the personal recommendations of now Interior Minister, Tsvetan Tsvetanov. He was at first listed as number 8 on the GERB ballot, but has been moved to the first slot over Tsvetanov's insistence. On July 15, 2010, he headed the municipal council, again of Tsvetanov's request, a representative of the RZS legal department told the media.

Ivanov says he knew Tsvetanov since 1996, but the Conservatives claim they were told by other employees of the Interior that the friendship dated from 1987 – the time of the Communist regime, adding the Municipal Council Chair, had, on purpose, concealed important moments of his biography such as working at the now-closed Ministry of Emergency Situations and Disasters.

Are you trying to say the ex-spy we have for a president is all innocent?
I'd rather have an honest farmer as a president!

Certainly it is political dirty laundry being made , but nothing more than GERB can expect.
The Consevatives has delivered evidence, and the GERB Member is publicly discredited.
But there are more skeletons in the cupboard and we expect GERB and the Government
to launch some pretty desperate counterattacks as the pressure builds up

Mr. Borisov and Tsvetanovs efforts to "damage" the President's reputation, by accusing him of being Mafia Godfather and political 5th columnist, are unprecedented in EU and have removed all expectations of Bulgaria as a serious partner in EU.
