Justice Minister Tsetska Tsacheva has rejected the words of Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP) leader Kornelia Ninova that the anti-corruption bill which the government is currently working on, does not meet the interests of society and that the BSP's own bill will solve the problems in this sphere.

In Minister Tsacheva's words, the anti-corruption bill of the BSP contains norms which have been rejected by practice and by the country's partners to the west:

“If we had results in the fight against corruption, there would be no need to be adopting a brand new anti-corruption law. All the more so that our western partners have rejected this option as it does not lead to a closing of the cycle, as President Radev himself presented it - analysis, report, investigation and indictment. The other difference between the two drafts is the way the administration of this single body is structured. We reached the conclusion that in a republic with a parliamentary system of government, the chairman of this single body should be elected by the National Assembly.”

The final discussion of the new anti-corruption bill by parliament is scheduled for 1 September.
