Kolev Elected Chair of Bulgarian Supreme Administrative Court

Bulgaria's Supreme Judicial Council (VSS) has elected unanimously Judge Georgi Kolev as Chair of the Bulgarian Supreme Administrative Court.

Kolev, who was the only nominee for the position anyway, got 19 out of 19 votes in the secret VSS ballot, even though three of the ballots were declared invalid.

The supreme magistrates held the vote Monday without any debates or competition for the position even though Bulgaria's judiciary is constantly slammed by international and Bulgarian factors, including PM Borisov and Interior Minister Tsvetanov.

Kolev's appointment has to be sealed with a decree of President Georgi Parvanov in order to become finalized.
