No new law for the Interior Ministry is necessary, Tsvetan Tsvetanov, deputy chairman of Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria (CEDB/GERB), said. The party will propose legal changes but not an entirely new law for the ministry, a reporter of FOCUS News Agency reported.
Within four months, the Parliament should approve a law on private guard activity which is directly linked to the fight against conventional crime, according to Tsvetanov. He also mentioned legal changes aimed at reducing car accidents.
Regarding statements from opposition Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP) about security and defence, Tsvetanov said they are trying to divert the country from the European way and from the government’s efforts to cut administrative burden, generate economic growth and prepare for Bulgaria’s EU Council presidency. “When we talk about defence, we should also talk about education, culture, economy and regional policy, because things that have to be done are many, while the state's resource is limited. We are making efforts to raise more money from revenue agencies, to have a budget that will enable us to enter the Eurozone waiting room and the Eurozone,” he added.
