Bulgaria’s Prime Minister, Boyko Borisov, disproved claims of the RZS leader, Yane Yanev, that former RSZ MP, Mario Tagarinski, has disappeared.

Earlier Saturday, Yanev said he was very much worried about Tagarinski’s life and safety because he was not answering his cell phone, home phone and no one was at his house.

Borisov, who is on official visit to the Black Sea capital Varna, was quick to dissipate the alarm, saying he spoke on the phone with Tagarinski Saturday, around noon, and the former Member of the Parliament from the Order, Law and Justice (RZS) party was “doing just fine.”

Tagarinski, who announced Friday he was leaving the RZS parliamentary group, had been celebrating last night his wedding anniversary and this is why he wasn’t picking up the phone, according to Borisov’s information, which clearly contradicts Yanev’s claims the MP might have fallen prey of political abduction.

Yanev even asked Interior Minister, Tsvetan Tsvetanov, to call a State-wide search for Tagarinski, which Tsvetanov declined with the motive the family has not filed a missing person report.

“Yanev is just blowing smoke. I will not enter into coalition with Parvanov; all my ministers work well with the President for Bulgaria’s sake,” Borisov is quoted as saying in response of Yanev’s claims about the emergence of a new “coalition” between the ruling Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria (GERB) party and Socialist President, Georgi Parvanov.

According to the PM, RZS became a bad example to the public by leaving the parliamentary debate about the 2010 State budget while a major part of Yanev’s latest statements has been just slander.

Regarding Tagarinski leaving the RZS parliamentary group, Borisov said the majority in the parliament is not in danger because GERB never really counted on RZS, but declined to comment further on the GERB – RZS relations.

The PM believes Tagarinski has not been pressured to leave the RZS parliamentary group.

Tagarinski’s move leads to the group’s falling apart since it now has 9 members instead of the required minimum of 10. According to the new General Assembly rules, the 9 RZS MPs can not join another group and would now function as independent MPs.
