Bulgarian Transport Minister Nominee Turns Down the Post

The nominee for taking the post of a Transport Minister in Bulgaria, Alexander Manolev, will decline the post before being voted in.

Dvenvnik.bg reported on the development. At the moment Alexander Manolev serves as a deputy Minister of Economy. After the resignation of three Bulgarian ministers due to a tragic bus crash that cost the lives of 17 people, the administration has to find new ministers. Manolev's official statement for the refusal will be made later today. Bulgaria’s Prime Minister Boyko Borisov hasn’t suggested another candidate for the post of Minister of Transport.

Besides Alexandar Manolev, two other candidates were suggested. Mladen Marinov was nominated for becoming Minister of Internal Affairs. He is currently serving as the General Secretary of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and couldn’t be relieved from the post due to Bulgaria’s President, Rumen Radev, not being in the country to sign the discharge documentation. The other candidate is Petya Avramova, a member of parliament from GERB. She is suggested for Minister of Regional Development.
