Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov appointed Diyan Stamatov as Deputy Education Minister.

This was announced by the government's press service on Monday.

Having earned a degree in biology at Sofia University, Stamatov currently serves as a director and biology teacher at a school in Sofia.

His appointment comes after the recent resignations in the education ministry.

At the end of January, Borisov demanded the resignation of then Education Minister Todor Tanev over systematic problems in the education system and proposed controversial changes to the school curriculum which had not been subject to broad public discussion.

Tanev resigned and was replaced by Deputy Prime Minister Meglena Kuneva, whose nomination was approved by parliament last week.

Former Deputy Education Minister Vanya Kastreva also resigned, while media reports suggest that Tanev will be appointed as adviser to the prime minister.
