Rumen Radev: Resignations, giving away money and postponements should not be used to put off fires
“I do not interfere with the work of the court and the Prosecutor's office, as well as the powers of the ruling coalition and parties, but I expect more than just show-offs. I expect efficiency and solution of the crisis in favor of the citizens of Pernik”. This was stated by President Rumen Radev in Belovo, where he arrived on the occasion of the 142nd anniversary of the city's liberation from Turkish slavery. According to him not only Pernik citizens but also thousands of other people face the same problem.
"I have been saying for a long time that the lack of transparency, responsibility and accountability leads to the collapse of the state. What happens to Pernik is the most noticeable result of this problem. But I can expand the list – unregulated landfills, African swine fever, problems in energy, healthcare, and education. Fires are not extinguished with resignations, handing out money and postponements. But I can also see how such techniques have already been depleted because the problems still remain ", the President stressed. According to him governance should not solve crises, it should not cause them.
"And in this direction it is very crucial to have a different approach-vision, expertise, reforms and good will because to resist the crisis and rule effectively are two different things. I expect the investigation to be effective and comprehensive so as all those who are interlinked bear their responsibility, " the head of state said.
Rumen Radev also answered a question related to the MRF's proposal for a change in the powers of the National Security Service. He said he did not comment on draft laws before they were delivered to the Presidency but he noted that" you should not confuse the NSS with a private security firm."
