Bulgarian PM Plans Reforms in National Bodyguard Service, National Intelligence Service

Bulgarian Prime Minister Boiko Borisov said he will propose changes in the legislation regulating the operation of the National Bodyguard Service (NSO) and the National Intelligence Service (NRS).

If the new president approves the proposed changes, they will be submitted to Parliament to be voted upon, news portal dnevnik.bg quoted Borisov as telling reporters in Burgas. The prime minister declined to elaborate on the nature of the planned changes.

Borisov has previously said he plans to propose that the two services should no longer be controlled by the president but by the executive instead. He, however, has stated that he would not initiate legislative changes as long as Georgi Parvanov is president as this might be considered as an attempt to restrict his powers.

Rosen Plevneliev will take over as president on January 22.
