PM Borissov: Mafia wants my resignation, I will not give it
Prime Minister Boyko Borissov has said he has no intention of resigning. His argument is that the mafia is pushing for this resignation. Borissov made this comment on September 9 during a visit to a Centre for Children with Oncological Diseases near Sofia, which will open soon.
While looking at the new complex, Prime Minister Borissov commented on who he thought provoked tensions in the country.
Boyko Borissov, Prime Minister: The mafia at the moment wants to overthrow the government. Because gambling, smuggling... everything like that is on the street against us. And they found a guide. And that gives me reason to believe that they should not get my resignation. This should be clear.
The Prime Minister stressed that the government has achieved a lot. And he can talk about the achievements not in the future, but in the present.
Boyko Borissov, Prime Minister: The others have nothing to show. That is why they are so irritated. They want us to resign, but they don't know what to do if they get in power. And if they were prepared, I would gladly let them.
Borissov reminded that the consequences of the coronavirus crisis will be felt very seriously in the coming months, and that the pandemic is returning to Europe.
Boyko Borissov, Prime Minister: We in Bulgaria are controlling it well so far, so that life can go on and people not to be afraid and worried.
He also announced that the first lot of “Europe” motorway will be opened in early November. And to the protesters who want his resignation, he responded with the feedback that the government receives.
Boyko Borissov, Prime Minister: Thousands, thousands of people write to us, "do not betray us", "do not leave us to this arrogance and viciousness".
Earlier this morning, the PM changed his profile photograph in his Facebook profile and wrote “Time for Change”, which provoked a wave of comments in the social media.
