Commenting article: Bulgarian Judges: Chief Prosecutor Vote Was Flawed

The vote for new Bulgarian Chief Prosecutor has not been secret as it is mandated, the Bulgarian Judges Association (BJA) insists.

The statement was made Sunday by the BJA spokesperson, Vesislava Ivanova, speaking in an interview for the Bulgarian National Radio, BNR.

Ivanova said the vote has been flawed because from all three candidates only one was actually subject of voting, adding BJA were not expecting and hoping that a member of the Council of Ministers would use their authority under article 150 of the Constitution to take the matter to the Constitutional Court.

Nobody takes Bulgarian judges seriously - and with good reason.

A recent report by the World Justice Project ranked Bulgaria 81st globally, behind Russia, Ukraine and Pakistan, for criminal justice.
