Prime Minister Borissov to Hold Series of Meetings with Party Leaders on Judicial Reform

Approached by journalists Sunday for a comment on the judicial reform, Prime Minister Boyko Borissov said that in January the National Assembly adopted the Government's Judicial Reform Strategy with big majority because he had talked with the political parties' leaders. "There has been a slight delay [in the adoption of the draft constitutional changes proposed by the Government], but I am convinced that next Friday these will be voted on first reading," he added. Borissov went on to say that this is the reason for a series of meetings between him and some party leaders on July 20 and 21. 
He expressed the hope that after the talks everything will be all right at Friday's vote on the constitutional changes, which concern the three key elements of the judicial reform that will mark an important step in the right direction both for Bulgaria and Brussels. 
Borissov listed the important elements in the reform: the division of the Supreme Judicial Council into two colleges -of judges and of prosecutors; the majority election of judges and prosecutors; and the strengthening of the judicial inspectorate's role.
