A true Twilight saga has been played out at the Bulgarian Parliament when a MP from ruling party GERB, Plamen Tsekov accused of vampirism his colleague from the Bulgarian Socialist Party, Maya Manolova.
“If it was midnight and there was a full moon, thanks to Mrs. Manolova, we would have witnessed a different kind of event,” Tsekov said Friday at a meeting of the Parliamentary ad-hoc committee, inspecting the publishing of the illegitimate amendment to the drugs law in the State Gazette on March.
Tsekov's statement triggered a bantering question by the Vanyo Sharkov, MP from the center-right Blue Coalition, whether this was an accusation of vampirism.
“Was that an accusation of vampirism?,” Sharkov asked.
During the meeting, Tsekov, who has been pointed as the main culprit for the scandalous amendment, has been making accusation for Manolova's behavior.
“What happened at the meeting today is really scandalous. The behavior of the MP Plamen Tsekov has not only been marked by lies and disrespect, but also became scandalous and low because he turned the job of the committee in personal attacks and insults,” Manolova said and added she will approach the Parliament's ethic committee to rule whether such behavior was normal for an MP.
According to Manolova, the incident with the illegitimate amendment is a stark example of an attempt to falsify the legislative procedure and amounts to document fraud and office malfeasance.
In their letter to the Chef Prosecutor, BSP point out that the Deputy Chair of the Health Committee, Plamen Tsekov, from the ruling GERB, intentionally misled MPs and read a text in plenary hall that differed from the one approved by the Committee.
“All the attempts of Mrs. Manolova to impute some sense of guilt in me for some organized group is in her fantasy, which apparently works very well. Maybe she watched too many spy movies. This is a characteristic of another political party, which has been dealing with conspiracies for many year, not for ours,” Tsekov said.
