Bulgaria's Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov will answer questions in the Parliament about the problems with the issuing of the new identity documents.

On Friday Tsvetanov will also talk about the measures for the issuing of the documents, the contract for the executive company Siemens and the taxes for them.

Following its launch on March 29, the new electronic system for issuing personal identity documents, including biometric data passports, was overwhelmed by the number of users online and temporary and sporadic delays in servicing citizens' needs occurred, with the Interior blaming mostly the German Siemens, which manufactured the software.

Bulgaria's PM Boyko Borisov will also talk in the Parliament on Friday about the cooperation by the World Bank for the absorption of funds under European programs.

The Finance Minister Simeon Djankov will answer on questions regarding the execution of the decision of the Parliament to make an analysis and assessment of the effects of the replacement of part of the Bulgarian foreign debt in 2002 and 2003.

On Friday, Djankov will also discuss the increase of the health care budget.
