Bulgarian Ruling Party Denies PM Hearing on Euro Rescue Plan
Bulgaria's ruling centrist-right GERB denied the proposition for a parliamentary hearing of Prime Minister Boyko Borisov on the country's stance ahead of the upcoming European Council meeting in Brussels on which a euro rescue plan will be discussed.
GERB, which has a majority in Bulgaria's 240-seat single-chamber parliament, voted against the proposition made by the far-right Ataka (Attack) party, a former ally of the ruling formation that is now in opposition.
The ruling majority also denied the proposed hearings of Labor Minister Totyu Mladenov and Agriculture Minister, regarding respectively the retirement reform and the ongoing protests of Bulgaria's grain producers over subsidy cuts, dnevnik.bg reports.
Members of the country's oppositional parties reacted by pointing out that denials like these are the cause for the low public image of the parliament.
