President Rumen Radev should convene the National Security Advisory Council due to the requirement in the Recovery and Resilience Plan by 2026 to reduce carbon emissions by 40% compared to 2019

Delyan Dobrev, chairman of the parliamentary energy committee and GERB MP, called for this during a discussion organized by the trade unions. 

According to him, this requirement threatens Bulgaria's national security, because "these 12.5 terawatt hours of electricity, which will not be produced, are worth 3.2 billion euros at current prices." According to the Dobrev, this sum represent 4% of the country's gross domestic product, i.e. Bulgarian economy will shrink by 4% for this reason alone.
