Parliament approves three new ministers

The National Assembly on Thursday voted positive on cabinet changes on a motion moved by prime minister Boiko Borissov.

Rossen Zhelyazkov was elected Minister of Transport, Information Technology and Communications in the place of Ivailo Moskovski. The vote was 213 in favour and 88 against.

Petya Avramova replaced Nikolai Nankov as Minister of Regional Development and Public Works on a vote of 205 in favour. Nankov's dismissal was approved by 125 MPs, while 90 (BSP for Bulgaria and MRF) voted against.

The legislature accepted Valentin Radev's resignation as Minister of Interior by a majority of 207 to 9. In another vote, 207-90, Radev was replaced by Mladen Marinov.

The three new Cabinet members were sworn after their election.

Moskovski, Nankov and Radev resigned on August 31 in the wake of a bus crash near Svoge (north-western Bulgaria) on August 25, in which 17 people were killed and another 20 were injured.
