The Director-General of the Bulgarian National Radio Andon Baltakov has submitted, to the Council for Electronic Media, a request for the early termination of his contract. The Council has expressed the hope that he will reconsider his decision to resign.

Andon Baltakov stated for the BNR’s Horizont channel that he is outraged by the lack of will on the part of the government for a change in the legal framework to guarantee an independent public service radio, entirely free of political interference.

Director-General Baltakov stated that the Ministry of Culture manipulated and falsified his opinion during the discussion of the amendments to the Radio and Television Act. 

Over this act Andon Baltakov has called for the resignation of Minister of Culture Boil Banov.
