“The presidential institution is getting to be too small for Rumen Radev, he wants real power,” Deputy Prime Minister and leader of the Bulgarian Socialist Party Kornelia Ninova stated for public service TV BNT, in a comment on the President’s multiple attacks against the government.

In her words, the attacks started in the very first month of the cabinet’s existence, and the catalyst was the replacement of the management of Bulgargaz. 

Kornelia Ninova said further that the past few days have been extremely eventful politically, and that in all the confusion, certain companies tried to submit papers that would allow the export of weapons to Ukraine

According to the leader of the Bulgarian Socialist Party, the negotiations with Russia's Gazprom should have been continued. She also stated firm support for the return of the use of paper ballots during elections
