The Bulgarian MPs went on summer vacation until September 2. The next regular parliamentary session will start in the new plenary hall on Narodno Sabranie Square N2, Deputy Speaker Valeri Simeonov said before ringing the bell for end of the season.

In an emotional speech, the Minister of Environment, Emil Dimitrov, said that he was the last minister to speak in this hall and it was an honor for him. For the last time in the historical hall Dimitrov read the oath-declaration of prime ministers, ministers and MPs. At these words, those present rose to their feet. This building is becoming part of the Bulgarian parliamentary history, which we should all be proud of, Minister Dimitrov pointed out, BTA has reported.
