Anton Kutev, media policy secretary of the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP), has apologized for recently comparing socialism to AIDS.
Kutev, one of the most seasoned functionaries of the BSP in the recent years, recently caused an outrage among the ranks of his own party with the botched comparison in which he apparently sought to demonstrate the power and "contagiousness" of socialism by declaring that it gets transmitted sexually and/or is hereditary.
"I apologize to all socialists who have not been able to do their work because of this made-up scandal over the last few days," Kutev has now said in a statement.
"I am sorry that my words are being used against BSP," he said, referring to the party being mocked by PM Boyko Borisov.
"I am sorry that some people felt insulted because of the irony I directed at my own family."
Kutev's father, Konstantin Kutev, was a longtime BSP functionary.
