The caretaker premier Georgi Bliznashki has asked the ministers to disclose the reasons for the staff changes they made in their sectors to counter allegations of mass political purges.

According to the transcript of the government’s latest weekly meeting held on Wednesday, Bliznashki said the previous Socialist-led government that stepped down in July after about a year in office, has dismissed and appointed more than 2,500 state officials.

“We should be ready to firmly resist [allegations of purges] because we’ve been extremely restrained, after all,” Darik radio station quoted Bliznashki as telling the ministers.

He added that in many cases the dismissals made by members of his government that took office in August involved compromised officials.

“We've tried to maintain balance in the society but not all political forces have appreciated this”.
