The new "Three-Way Coalition" is well on its way to bring Bulgaria back to the times when EU funding was frozen.

The statement belongs to the leader of the formerly-ruling opposition center-right Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria party, GERB, and former Prime Minister, Boyko Borisov.

He posted it on his Facebook wall after recently creating his own social network profile.

"The fake profiles in social networks are constantly popping up, thus I wish to announce that this is my only and real one, and I stand behind everything that is written here," Borisov informed Tuesday.

He commented on the replacement of Lazar Lazarov with Stefan Chaikov as chair of the managing body of Bulgaria's Road Infrastructure Agency, saying Lazarov has contributed greatly to the building of hundreds of kilometers of highways, roads, overpasses and bridges, and to making Bulgarians forget about the abuse of EU infrastructure funds during the rule of the Three-Way Coalition, led by the Bulgarian Socialist Party, BSP.

"Regretfully, the new Socialist-endorsed Coalition is on its way to have these funds frozen once again and Bulgarian citizens will be deprived of their huge benefit. Thanks to these funds we have today the highways Trakiya, Struma, Lyulin, portions of the Hemus highway completed, and Sofia's subway and beltway," the GERB leader writes.

He further blasts the Interior Ministry because it emerged the police in Varna have requested information and personal data on GERB members in the Black Sea city.

"Why are the police interested in this? Millions voted for us in the last general elections. This is an unbearable burden on police to find data on all of them. I think they have way more important tasks and duties. But all this makes as more firm and ambitious. This is the stink the new Three-Way Coalition is leaving behind," says Borisov.
