Commenting article: Fence at Border with Turkey Will be Built Without Public Procurement

Bulgarian members of parliament from the four parties constituting the ruling coalition, tabled amendments to the Public Procurement Act in the National Assembly on Thursday.

This comes a day after Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov urged members of parliament to quickly amend legislation in order to ensure the construction of the fence at the border with Turkey, electronic daily Dnevnik reports.

The proposed amendments will allow for the protective facility to be constructed without the need to initiate a public procurement procedure, as the fence will be considered an object of national security.
