The Director General of the Bulgarian National Radio, Andon Baltakov, has announced that he will withdraw his resignation, deposited with the Electronic Media Council. This happened earlier today at a general meeting of all employees of the media which was held partially online.

On October 21, Baltakov announced that he was resigning due to the lack of will on behalf of the governing authorities in the country for a change in the legal framework, which would guarantee an entirely independent public radio completely free from political interference.

The day before he was supposed to leave the media, Andon Baltakov convened a general meeting of the media, at which he stressed that the support of his colleagues in the Bulgarian National Radio had motivated him to withdraw his resignation so he could stay with them in the battle to defend the public service mission of the Bulgarian National Radio.
