The former deputy head of Bulgaria's Financial Supervision Commission Bisser Petkov stands very high chances to be elected the next chair of the country's Social Security Institute (NOI).

Petkov is considered to be the favorite candidate for the ruling GERB party, whose members have already tabled his nomination to parliament. It will be put to debates on Thursday. Under local legislation the head of Bulgaria's Social Security Institute must be approved by parliament.

Petkov have confirmed the news of his nomination, saying that the ruling party has proposed that he takes over the job, which he has accepted.

The former head of Bulgaria's Social Security Institute (NOI) Hristina Mitreva resigned in the middle of May under pressure and despite her firm determination to remain at the post.

Even though Mitreva's dismissal was seen by some as another example of Prime Minister Borisov's washout staff policy, which has very often had dire consequences, she herself has blamed political pressure and refusal to run political errands for her dismissal.
