Bulgaria – PM fires ministers

The Bulgarian Prime Minister, Boyko Borisov, has sacked two ministers.

On Thursday, the Minister of Economy, Energy and Tourism, Traicho Traikov, and the Minister of Health, Stefan Konstantinov, were fired. The sacking of Traikov seems to be causing some further political fallout. His dismissal seems to be linked to negotiation with Russian companies about the building of a nuclear power plant.

Sofial New Agency is reporting alleged differences between the PM and the Minister. The PM is being accused of favouring Russian interests. Some parties are portraying the Minister as defending the national interest.

This sort of division has the potential to cause further problems for the government.
