Leader of Bulgaria’s CEDB: I am firmly against making decisions on shale gas that incite public tension

Pleven. “I find this cynical – after the Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria (CEDB) imposed a moratorium on the shale gas extraction in Bulgaria, on the one hand having interim Minister of Environment Svetlana Zhekova granting permission about something that would incite public tension – I am firmly against it. In the second place, those, who signed the agreement, in the person of [former energy minister] Dragomir Stoynev, to start protesting now.

You should open the internet and see when this deal was signed and who the responsible minister is,” said Boyko Borisov, CEDB leader and former prime minister, speaking with journalists in the town of Pleven, FOCUS News Agency reporter said.

“With all my respect to the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP), I cannot even follow their inconsistency,” Borisov remarked.
