Prime Minister Boyko Borisov has confessed that he felt angry when he got booed by the audience of the freestyle motorcycling final held last Sunday at the Arena Armeets sports hall.

The name of PM Borisov, who was present at the event, was mentioned several times during the program, to the disapproval of 9,000-strong audience.

PM Borisov was instrumental in carrying out and completing the Arena Armeets project, the largest and most modern sports hall in Bulgaria.

"Yes, I am a person who is affected by such things. I got angry," Borisov said in a Sunday interview for private TV channel bTV.

"After all, every nation is free to determine its way of life. Stanishev had no chance of getting booed because he did not open a sports hall where this could happen," the Prime Minister added, hurling criticism to his left-wing predecessor.

"However, these are all people who never even had it in their dreams that things could take a turn for the better. When you get a pig out of the pig sty, it starts squealing and goes back," Borisov commented.

He said that he had had no other chance but to give up the presidential race in end-October because there was nobody else to set order in the affairs of center-right ruling GERB party and the government.

Borisov described GERB as a family in which the man and the woman were struggling for dominance.

"I am the man. When I am there, things will stay normal," the Prime Minister noted.

"I only turn back when I need to calculate payments I shall have to allocate in the future," Borisov said, responding to a question about whether he had taken the time to draw a balance for 2011.

Regarding his future plans, he said that he had made a plan for the years up to 2013, including.

"May the crisis be over, because I got the toughest time in the world. It gets worse only  during wars," Borisov told bTV.

Borisov further spoke in favor of amendments to labor legislation which would enable the state to penalize the business sector for unpaid wages.

He explained that the problem affected hundreds of Bulgarians who had not been paid what they had earned as a result of a bankruptcy and vowed that the three-way council, which unites representatives of the government, the trade unions, and the business sector, was to draft proposals to remedy the situation once the Christmas and New Year holidays were over.
