A reshuffle within the leadership of the National Security Service (NSO) enters into force on Monday, the second one in two weeks.

Krasimir Stanchev is the second deputy head of the National Security Service to be removed from office, the State Gazette's October 04 edition will say, according to information from BGNES wire service.

Col Rosen Todorov will take over from Stanchev.

The reasons for the reported reshuffle, if confirmed, are not immediately clear.

In the summer, Col Yulian Haralampiev was replaced by Lt Col Emil Tonev, with NSO citing Col Haralampiev's lack of a minimum of 5-year experience on a managerial position.

NSO, which provides personal guard for high-profile politicians such as the President (who appoints the leadership with a decree), went a major leadership change in 2014, when Todor Kodzheykov, thought to be close to Prime Minister Boyko Borisov, quit as head of the service alongside one of his deputies. Borisov was not Prime Minister at the time.
