The former MP and top financier Lyubomir Karimanski breaks down Asen Vassilev’s budget for 2024. The plan for the state treasury caused a lot of criticism because of the unfulfillable revenue part.
I have no problems talking to the biggest opponent, if he is not considered an ultimate institution, he commented on the broken communication in the state.
Before the time, with all my positive disposition to help with the budget of the 46th National Assembly, I treated Asen Vassilev with extreme goodwill and wanted to give my knowledge. The moment it became clear that he was not listening and that his opinion was the most important and his position was: I shine and you are the dark, the background…..this arrogance is inherent in people who have a lot large complexes. I never allowed myself to behave unprofessionally and until the end I defended things that benefit the common good, explained Karimanski.
When we are sulky and angry, like little children in kindergarten, then it was the most unpleasant. Especially in the 47th National Assembly, when we turned the entire budget over to him face up, he even left the hall, he didn’t want to stay, Karimanski recalled.
Although he has an even-toned pretense of being in control of his emotions. But I don’t see anything wrong with being emotional, said the guest.
Asen Vasilev does not have a CV from which we can see what he studied and what he worked for. I would like to see his administrative experience, which he represents that he has. I want to see its points of contact with public finance, or at least with finance, Karimanski pointed out.
Because can a truck driver drive a tyre. He was required to prove he could, he said.
If Kiril Petkov showed a kind of diploma from afar, Asen Vassilev did not show one, the financier pointed out.
Even if there was a comment about selling Lukoil, the government cannot sell the company to its head. But it can pressure Lukoil with many tools. Back in 1947, I was offered to put the base in Rosenets on commission, to buy it off. The proposal was from DPS, I will not name names, he pointed out.
I will not be surprised if everyone has the same desire – for Lukoil to be resold or for the owner to change, Karimanski said.
