Boyko Naydenov, head of Bulgaria's National Investigation Service, has been elected as Bulgaria's interim Chief Prosecutor after last week's resignation of Boris Velchev.

A total of 14 members of the country's 25-member Supreme Judicial Council backed Naydenov's nomination, informs.

Velchev left office after a decree signed by President Rosen Plevneliev for his appointment as a member of the Constitutional Court.

The procedure for the appointment of a new Chief Prosecutor is to start Thursday, with the Supreme Judicial Council holding two consecutive sessions on the matter, after which the concrete nominations will be received.

The magistrates said to be competing for the post of Chief Prosecutor are said to be Plovdiv District Court Chair Sotir Tsatsarov, Deputy Chief Prosecutor Galina Toneva, and Sofia City Prosecutor Nikolay Kokinov.
