The Bulgarian government will fire any state worker, who takes part of the anti-government protests. This is what the prime minister of Bulgaria Plamen Oresharski announced after more than 150 days of protests against his government, said the Bulgarian Darik Radio.
“State officials, who as you said, are known to work against the government will be freed from duty. We are working to look for the best clerks, but we don’t always succeed. We can’t allow the administration to be politicized”, said Oresharski.
The statement comes after the students of the Sofia University, who occupied the college, call for a occupation of the parliament, which is near the University. On 12 November 2013 there were clashes between police and protesters near the Parliament. Demonstrators alarmed that the human rights are really neglected. There were reports of extreme police violence without any cause. A big piece of the center of the Bulgarian capital is reported to be blocked by the police.
Tensions are getting higher as two of the parties, which support the government reported that their protest will be conducted on Saturday in front of the parliament, where usualy the anti-government protests take place. Some see this as a threat getting back in to the communist regime which collapsed 24 years ago.
The protests erupted on 14 June 2013 when a media mogul and a MP was elected for a State Security chief. He resigned, but the protests continued demanding the resignation of the government. The coalition of the Bulgarian Socialist party (BSP), Movement of Rights and Liberties (DPS)(seen as ethic party by many Bulgarians) and the nationalist party ATAKA refuse to strip the government of confidence and support.
