The CEO of Bulgaria's only operational nuclear power plant in Kozloduy, Valentin Nikolov, will not be fired, caretaker prime minister Milen Raykov confirmed on Tuesday.
"I assess highly the work that Mr Nikolov is doing and can see no reason for radical measures at this point,” Marin Raykov said at a press conference.
He added that the next government will also have the opportunity to express their views on the topic.
In April, Minister of Economy and Energy Asen Vasilev announced that Nikolov will be fired from his office over findings of violations of public procurement procedures at the NPP.
Raykov first announced his surprising U-turn on Nikolov's release from duty in a TV interview Sunday.
