Sofia, 19 September 2021 (BTA/MIA) – Former caretaker ministers Kiril Petkov and Asen Vassilev presented here Sunday their new political project Change Continues and their ideas for future participation in the political life of the country.
Kiril Petkov said that everyone who will participate in Change Continues will sign a contract for integrity as a condition for participation. ”We realized that it doesn’t matter if you are left or right, the important thing is whether you are honest, this is a huge priority and we are here to start working with honest people,” he said.
The former caretaker economy minister stressed that his new formation aims not to add anything new, but to continue the change that he worked on in the past for months as part of the caretaker cabinet.
On his part, former caretaker finance minister Asen Vassilev clarified that many parties have called them proposing that Change Continues become mandate holders and the team is currently in negotiations with 7-8 political forces.
Vassilev also commented that taxes are high enough and there are enough revenues in the treasury to have both normal education and normal health care. The problem is that all control mechanisms are for one reason or another suspended currently and there is no control over how money is spent, he commented. ”If we start paying the real value and demand real quality, we will have a prosperous country that gives everyone an equal start,” Vassilev argued.
