No EU funds will go for unreformed sectors in Bulgaria for the next programing period, warned Bulgarian caretaker Deputy-PM Iliyana Tsanova.
"Preparations for the 2014-20 programing period are under way. So before voting, Bulgarian citizens better check carefully the programs of the various political parties," said Tsanova for bTV Sunday.
According to the minister, who is in charge of Bulgaria's EU funds absorption, the country must implement reforms in particular in the health system and the judiciary, to be able to receive funds in those areas.
She stressed that the preparation for the next EU programming period is among the key priorities of her ministry.
According to Tsanova, by end of 2013, Bulgaria will absorb EU funds worth EUR 2 B, which is equal to the amount for the last 2-3 years.
Bulgarians are to vote on early elections May 12, following the Feburary resignation of PM Boyko Borisov, just months before the end of his term in office in July.
