Bulgaria's Deputy Regional Development Minister Georgi Pregyov resigned on Tuesday just two weeks after the replacement of the department's head, who will run for the presidency office.

Pregyov, who was responsible for the Directorate for national construction control, the Agency for geodesy, cartography and cadastre and road projects, has cited personal reasons. It was not immediately clear who will succeed the post.

This is the sixth resignation in the government over the last three weeks.

The resignation comes just days after Lilyana Pavlova was appointed Bulgaria's Minister of Regional Development and Public Works.

She replaced Rosen Plevneliev, the most successful minister in the center-right government of Boyko Borisov, who quit his cabinet post to run for president on the ticket of the ruling Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria, GERB, party in the October 23 elections.

Lilyana Pavlova was the favorite for taking over the cabinet job, very dear to Borisov's heart as it is in charge of building highways, on which he has pinned lots of hopes to boost lagging support for the government among voters.

Sources say Pavlova has been picked for Plevneliev's successor since Borisov considers continuity in the regional ministry team to be very important and insists that the pace of work there does not slacken.

Surprisingly however she has promised "changes in the configuration" of her department.
