All candidates for elective offices in Bulgaria should undergo an obligatory psychological assessment, Krasimir Velchev, a key MP with ruling centrist-right GERB, has proposed.

The new measure should include Presidential runners, candidates for Mayors and candidates for municipal council members, Velchev has told the 24 Chasa daily.

He has pointed out that the psychological evaluation of wanna-be elective officials is his own idea and not that of the party. Velchev is currently the chairman of GERB's parliamantary group.

Mayors exist in Bulgaria who "picture themselves as sheriffs", the MP has pointed out. He has revealed that he questioned the sanity of some politicians even before he entered his country's political life.

Velchev stated that his colleagues have supported his idea in informal conbersations.
