Bulgarian Members of the Parliament began their workday Thursday by observing a minute of silence in tribute of legendary Bulgarian cinema and theater actor, Kosta Tsonev.
Tsonev passed away Wednesday, at the age of 82, after a prolonged and serious illness.
The Speaker of the Parliament, Tsetska Tsacheva, addressed the MPs, saying the actor was one of the symbols of an entire era in Bulgarian cinema and theater along with being an individual with an uncompromising civil position as an MP in two General Assemblies.
Tsonev was elected MP in the 39th and 40th General Assemblies on the ballot of the party of former Tsar and Prime Minister, Simeon Saxe-Coburg, National Movement for Stability and Prosperity, NMSP.
The Parliament then proceeded with debates on the ratification of the Convention for the Rights of the Disabled.
