The Bulgarian cabinet issued Wednesday an official proposal to President, Georgi Parvanov, to appoint Konstantin Kazakov at the post of Director of the State Agency for National Security, DANS,

Until now Kazakov was temporarily in charge of the Agency after the resignation of Tsvetlin Yovchev in the aftermath of the wiretapping scandal that has been shaking Bulgaria since the beginning of the year.

Kazakov was born in 1966 in Sofia. He is a graduate of the Moscow Mining Institute and had specialized at the Interior Ministry Academy and at law enforcement institutions in Hungary and the US.

Kazakov has been an employee of the Interior Ministry since October, 1993, moving through his career from intelligence officer to unit head.

After the establishment of DANS, he was appointed unit head there and later directorate head.

In 2009, Kazakov was appointed DANS Deputy Director.
