The parliamentary group of Bulgaria's main ruling party GERB restated its firm support for Environment Minister Ivelina Vasileva on Tuesday.
This comes after the oppositional Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP) had demanded earlier on Tuesday the resignation of Vasileva due to the damages caused by the recent floods in the country.
Chair of the parliamentary Environment Committee Stanislav Ivanov (GERB) affirmed his party's support for Vasileva and dismissed the criticism towards her as being immoral, daily Dnevnik reports.
Ivanov reminded that the previous BSP-led government of Prime Minister Plamen Oresharski had experienced similar difficulties in addressing last summer's natural disasters.
The lawmaker explained that the incumbent government had taken steps at the end of 2014 to establish a control body, which is to permanently monitor the state of the dams in the country.
