Bulgaria’s Leftists To Call for Parl Hearing over Govt Position on EU's Fiscal Compact Plans, Eurozone Crisis

The parliamentary group of the socialist Coalition for Bulgaria will request that Prime Minister Boiko Borisov addresses the MPs on the country's position regarding the plans for a fiscal compact within the EU and the crisis in the eurozone, state-run Bulgarian News Agency (BTA) on Tuesday cited socialist leader Sergei Stanishev as saying.

International media reported a day earlier that German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Nicolas Sarkozy met in Berlin to flesh out a rulebook for budgetary discipline negotiated at a December 9 summit that seeks to create a "fiscal compact" for the 17-member euro area.

Stanishev made the statement carried by BTA at a meeting of the party leadership which got together for the first time in 2012.

The meeting discussed the priorities of Bulgaria's leftists in 2012, including setting up a working group to prepare an overhaul of the country's election laws. The socialists also plan to contest in court the recent amendments to the Labour Code concerning workers' rights.
