Bulgarian Socialist Demand Investigation of State Gazette Blunder

Date: 01.04.2010

The Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP) launched the idea to appoint a temporary investigation committee over the blunder that put an illegitimate amendment to the drugs law in the State Gazette.

The BSP leader, Sergey Stanishev, said Tuesday the blunder is an unprecedented case in the Bulgarian Parliament, defining it as an attempt on the part of the majority to falsify a particular text in the law. According to Stanishev, there is no way the change can be considered a technical oversight.

The socialists want the investigative committee to find out what were the real goals behind the changes in the text. Stanishev is convinced his party will collect the necessary 48 signatures to appoint the committee. In they fail do do so, the socialists threaten to notify the Prosecutor's Office because they see the blunder as a breach of the Constitution.

The amendment was not given the green light by either the parliament or the president, but actually relieved the regime for advertising agencies to use images, resembling narcotic drugs. BSP say the change was made to benefit certain businesses.

President Georgi Parvanov was the one to alert about the change. The Socialist President also called it a precedent, at least since his coming into office, but the Speaker, Tsetska Tsacheva, who comes from the ruling Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria (GERB) center-right party, claims a check has found a total of eleven such mistaken amendments in the 2000-2010 period.
