Bulgarian President Launches Public Council Consultations
Bulgaria's President, Rosen Plevneliev, is calling Friday consultations for the establishment of a Public Council at his office.
Thirty five representatives of people who demonstrated for weeks against poverty and the political system, of the trade unions, the business, of civic organizations, the academic community, and of NGOs will be debating the tasks and the rules in the work and the structure of the future Public Council.
The Council will be chaired by the Deputy Prime Minister in the pending caretaker government.
The consultations will be held Friday afternoon.
The Public Council will be a consultative body at the caretaker government in making decisions, issuing opinions, and adopting initiatives.
On February 21, Bulgaria's Parliament approved the resignation of the government of Prime Minister, Boyko Borisov, and his ruling Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria party, GERB, amidst unprecedented since 1997 protest rallies against unbearable utility bills, monopolies, and wide-spread poverty that turned into a civil unrest against the political model of ruling the country.
