Lyubomir Alamanov: The Workplace of a Prime Minister Is Not on the Construction Site
A Prime Minister's workplace is not on the construction site. And if someone claims that a Prime Minister's workplace is there, then they are either very stupid and have no functional understanding of what a prime minister should do in a normal democratic parliamentary republic, or they deliberately lie and manipulate.
That's what the communications and crisis specialist Lyubomir Alamanov wrote on his Facebook page.
The Prime Minister's workplace is:
- In the Council of Ministers so as to outline the strategic development of the state.
- In the Council of Ministers so as to plan steps on the "coming unprecedented economic crisis".
- In the Council of Ministers so as to coordinate the work of the administration in order to comprehend how to make administrative reform and reduce the number of unnecessary officials.
- In the Ministry of Health so as to finally launch the health reform.
- In the Ministry of Health so as to plan anti-crisis actions if COVID crisis worsens.
- In the Ministry of Health so as to plan the Emergency service reform.
- In the Ministry of Finance so as to discuss reducing the tax burden at least in crisis times. Like the “Tax Weekend” which is phenomenally unfair under the conditions of the continuing home office practice.
- In the Ministry of Finance so as to discuss what the levels of foreign investments are and why major projects are increasingly bypassing us.
- In the Ministry of Justice so as to plan a real reform of the judiciary.
- In the Ministry of Justice so as to plan how to get the prosecutor's office to do its job.
- In the Ministry of Justice so as to think over how to get the Attorney General to open cases against politicians, not against a kindergarten or ice cream cart.
- In the Ministry of Transport so as to find out how BGN 1 billion was given without a public procurement.
- In the Ministry of Transport so as to find out why the repair of a damaged section of the highway has been delayed for years, so that the warranty expires and then the state budget pays for the repair.
- In the Interior Ministry so as to find out when the records of the beaten people under the columns of the Council of Ministers will be finally published.
- In the Interior Ministry so as to see why the police officers are still working in brutish conditions in the local police stations.
- In the Ministry of Labor and Social Welfare so as to plan a reform so as not to have to nationalize the second pillar of the pension system.
- In the Ministry of Labor and Social Welfare so as to reassure them that reforms will be made, whatever the far-right pseudo-patriots may dream of.
- In the American Chamber of Commerce so as to apologize for the stupid, greedy and bribery officials who are pushing investors away.
- In the other chambers of commerce so as to reassure businesses that he will not nationalize them or let greedy cops steal them.
- In the European Parliament, when invited to hearings so as to understand why foreigners have been bypassing Bulgaria disgusted.
In normal media so as to answer real questions from real journalists.
And in many, many other places like these.
But not on construction sites. The prime minister's workplace is not on construction sites, unless he is a concrete worker, a construction inspector or at least a cement mixer driver.
There is nothing more disgusting than a tyrant waving a pickaxe and pretending to be a "people person." And then he goes home to his drawers and enjoys fooling the elderly.
The Prime Minister's workplace is not on the construction sites. We pay him a salary to think. Not to distribute hundreds of millions, as if taking them out of his pocket, surrounded by his football fans.
The Prime Minister's workplace is not on the construction site. It's not by his job description. And if he doesn't understand that, his employer can replace him at any time.
You guys can replace him. The state needs normal management, not a concrete worker handing out our money, not a driver fleeing responsibility.
