The governor of the Bulgarian National Bank today (June 23) called on the country's parliament to elect his successor as quickly as possible to allow him to bring a prompt end to his term in charge, 11 months after he first offered to step down during a scandal that saw one of his deputies lose his job.
Ivan Iskrov's term expires on October 10 this year, but the law allows his successor to be chosen between July 10 and August 10. He said today he wants his successor to be chosen as close to July
