Bulgaria's former cabinet led by PM Boyko Borisov had decided to keep under special protection their Vice-PM and Minister of Interior Tsvetan Tsvetanov out of concern for his life.

This was revealed Wednesday by Bulgaria's National Security Service, a state agency in charge of ensuring the security of senior statesmen and other high-ranking public figures.

Tuesday, Tsvetanov, now just vice-chair of formerly ruling GERB party, provoked interest when appearing in public to register GERB for the May 12 snap elections, surrounded by state security guards.

When asked about that, he replied that he does not know why he is still kept under guard.

According to the National Security Service release, the then-resigned Borisov cabinet decided to keep Tsvetanov protected on March 4, due to a "threat on his life."
