Bulgaria to Spend BGN 24 M on Providing All Citizens with State Emails
Sunday, 14th February 2016

The Bulgarian state will spend BGN 24 M on providing all citizens with emails.

The compulsory state emails will be provided with the new identity documents, private NOVA TV informed on Friday.

The project has been developed by the team of Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister Rumyana Bachvarova.

Deputy Minister of Information Technologies in charge of the electronic government, Valeri Borisov, said that the email is aimed at disciplining citizens in their communication with the state.

However it remains unclear how many Bulgarians will have access to these emails and whether the elderly will be able to use them.

According to figures of the National Statistical Institute (NSI) released at the end of last year, around 40 % of Bulgarians do not have access to the internet at home.

The creation of state emails became possible after a law adopted several years ago, but has not been compulsory.

Thursday, 11th February 2016

Sixty-nine members of Bulgarian parliament have submitted a motion of no confidence in the coalition government led by Prime Minister Boyko Borisov over the cabinet’s policies in the healthcare sector, public radio bradcaster BNR reported on Thursday.

This is the first censure motion against the present minority coalition government led by Prime Minister Boyko Borisov which took office in November 2014.

The no-confidence motion was submitted by MPs from main opposition Socialist Party, the Movement for Rights and Freedoms (DPS) and two independent MPs.

Debate on the no-confidence motion should be held no later than next Thursday.

The Bulgarian Socialist Party and DPS hold a total of 68 of the 240 seats in Parliament.  Borisov's centre-right GERB party and its junior coalition partner Reformist Bloc control a total of 107 seats.
