Commenting article: Bulgarian Minister Halts Construction on Irakli Beach after Mass Protest

Construction works on the Irakli beach on Bulgaria's Black Sea coast have been stopped by officials of the Directorate for National Construction Supervision (DNSK) through an order of Regional Development Minister Lilyana Pavlova.

The construction of a holiday complex by the Emona 2000 company was suspended late on Monday after thousands of Bulgarians staged protests in four cities to oppose the devastation of protected natural areas.

The construction works were halted temporarily over the lack of a document certifying a contract for the disposal of construction waste, a mandatory requirement of the environmental impact assessment (EIA) report.

Of course protests are biased, what a ridiculous statement, all protests by their very nature are biased, what else could they be? The fact that thousands turned out in protest however is the true point, government should think in future about what the public want and will accept, and consult them fairly and honestly. The days of steam rolling things alsong are gone and the authorities should recognise this.
