“The presentation, in parliament, of a report on the work of the prosecutor’s office by Prosecutor General Ivan Geshev should usher in a debate on the need of a change to the constitution,” said Bulgarian Socialist Party MP Anton Kutev in an interview for the BNR.

“The Grand National Assembly of almost 30 years ago gave the prosecutor general a high level of independence but no option for his replacement,” Anton Kutev said.

In his words Prosecutor General Ivan Geshev is operating “on the fringes and beyond the fringes of the law,” attending to the interests of part of the elite and businesses at the expense of the other part.

“Beneath the surface of society there are questions that are “burning”- should the constitution be amended, and if yes, how – are we going to have a presidential republic, and are we going to alter the powers of the prosecutor general, are we going to have a different number of MPs in parliament? Unless these problems are solved institutionally, they will be solved spontaneously in the streets,” Anton Kutev said. He predicted a new wave of protests in the autumn.
