Bulgaria's Prime Minister, Boyko Borisov, stated Friday night that in his first 100 days in office he stopped embezzlement of state funds, and found money for large infrastructure projects.
In a political talk show of the BNT, Borisov said that even though 30 of his first 100 days were in August, during the regular summer vacation period, they had still been counted.
He said he was happy with the work of the GERB Parliamentary Group which initially needed a little time as newcomers to the Parliament. Borisov also made it clear he was very satisfied with the work of his ministers.
“Stanishev was the Prime Minister in the government of the three-way coalition. They performed all the wrongdoings. If he did not want to be a part of that, he should have left, caused early elections, and could thus have won everyone’s respect,” Borisov said about his predecessor.
“Stanishev’s clique incurred heavy damages on Bulgaria. The pizza is meatless because they stole the toppings,” the PM said referring to the metaphor used by Finance Minister Djankov who likened the 2010 State Budget to a small, meatless pizza.
“It is obvious that they had been stealing state money, that they governed in a very bad way. Just look at the secret intelligence reports missing from the National Security Agency. People want justice and order,” the Prime Minister said regarding the former government.
