Karakachanov for Sofia protest: Football fans’ group tries to break police cordon, some hand out BGN 50
We will not demand resignation of the president, announced Tomislav DonchevMonitor News Agency , Sofia
"I could see well from my window that the attempt to break through the police cordon was organized by football fans. Our party supporter was offered BGN 50 in order to protest." This was revealed by the Deputy Prime Minister Krassimir Karakachanov about last night's protests in Sofia at an extraordinary briefing at the Council of Ministers, together with his colleague Tomislav Donchev and Social Affairs Minister Denitsa Sacheva.
"Thanks to all those who protest without disturbing the public order. Thanks also to the police. You are probably expecting a similar reaction after the president's participation. No, there will be no similar reaction. I will not say that the government wants his resignation. This will result in an even more severe institutional crisis," Tomislav Donchev said.
"The government turned into mafia when the prosecutor's office indicted the president's advisers," Donchev said in response to Radev's remarks. The Deputy Prime Minister interpreted his words in a way that he wants all the power now and uncontrollably. "If someone wants all the power now, let him explain why," Donchev urged, commenting that there is a point to reach from where there is no return.
"The Council of Ministers does not belong to Boyko Borissov, the President’s Administration does not belong to Rumen Radev. Let's protect our state, it is only one for all of us," Donchev appealed.
The Social Minister Denitsa Sacheva appealed to think not only about how to support the Bulgarian Summer project, referring to the idea for establishing a party of Vasil Bozhkov, who fled to Dubai, but also to think about the winter. Sacheva called for a dialogue because, according to her, the self-reflecting citizens do not like what is happening. "This government has been legally elected. Calls for riots are reminiscent of another time. Mr Radev has not found time for 24 hours to comment on the news of our entry into ERM II, today he even hinted that he has remarks towards Europe also," Sacheva commented.
