NIKOLAI VASSILEV BRINGS HIS TEAM TO LIGHT
Deputy Premier and Minister of Economy Nikolai Vassilev preferred not to play cat-and-mouse with the journalists and showed them the members of his Minsitry's political cabinet before the Prime Minister had officially appointed the deputy ministers. No one of them has so far had any experience in high administration. The impression is that Mr. Vassilev's team includes friends and colleagues of him and only two outsiders.
Mr. Vassilev will have five deputies in the Ministry of Economy: Kaloyan Ninov, Lyubka Kachakova, Sofia Kassidova, Dimitar Hadjinikolov, and Roumen Beremsky. The political cabinet will have Milen Keremidchiev as Chief Secretary, Bilyana Dyakova as Chief of the Minister's Cabinet, Maria Divizieva as Parliamentary Secretary, and Mariela Licheva as Head of the PR Directorate. Nikolai Vassilev presented his team at a meeting with the Ministry's employers in the National Palace of Culture on July 7.
