The accusations of lack of transparency and responsibility in the Government activities are part of the campaign of both the parliamentary and the out-of-parliament opposition, which discredits Bulgaria before its European and Euroatlantic counterparts, Stanishev added.
"In my capacity of both a citizen and Prime Minister, I have declared more than once that I shall fulfill my obligations if I find out about a perpetrated crime of common nature, including a case when I receive information giving the ground to presume that a crime was perpetrated," the Prime Minister said.
He confirmed that executive power units are inspected regarding disposition of state properties and budget spendings. Depending on the results and findings from the inspection assigned to Defence Minister Nikolai Tsonev regarding disposition of former Defence Ministry's properties, the authority, which should realize the responsibility pursuant to the law, if any, shall be appointed.
"We found out that there are shortcomings in the coordination, insufficient control rendered by higher levels of executive and insufficient communication with the European Commission," Stanishev also said.
According to him, the measures undertaken by the Government, are not cosmetic ones and there are no political compromises. After the appointment of Deputy Prime Minister Meglena Plougchieva, work picked up and this is a result of an analysis made by the Government regarding the way the Bulgarian administration and agencies work in regards to EU funds absorption, the Prime Minister said.
"Both the cabinet members and I will do our best the funds, which are intended for Bulgarian citizens, for modernization of the infrastructure of hospitals, schools, for municipalities, for increasing competitiveness, to be efficiently and appropriately absorbed, however, Bulgaria has a difficult task to fulfil, which requires full mobilization of both Government and administration and the whole society," Stanishev said.
