The case against the decision of the Council for Electronic Media from June 29 to terminate the procedure for the election of the general director of BNT, did not go to the Administrative Court – Sofia region.

It was because of him that the mandate of Emil Koshlukov was extended. At the same time, the CEM is preparing a change in the procedure for electing a general director, “so as not to repeat the practice that led us to have a relationship with the judicial system”, explained its chairperson, Sonja Momchilova.

The case was scheduled by judge Marijana Lazarova for today at 11:30 a.m. According to “Dnevnik”, the reason is the illness of one of the candidates for the head of public television, Sasho Yovkov. He insisted on attending the trial in person.

The case was initiated on the complaint of one of the candidates – Irina Velichkova.

She points out that the full text of this decision, if it existed at all, was not published anywhere until the time of filing the appeal – neither in the State Gazette, nor in the media or the website of CEM. That is why Velichkova could not take a specific attitude towards the motives and dispositif in it.

According to her, the appealed unpublished decision of the CEM of June 29 is illegal, as it did not meet the requirement of an established form, it was issued in case of substantial violations of the rules.

The case was initiated on July 20 and all the candidates for the post of head of BNT – Sasho Dikov, Sasho Yovkov, Vasilena Matakieva, Emil Koshlukov, Venelin Petkov, Svetlana Bozhilova and Krasimir Angelov – are named as interested parties. The next meeting is scheduled for September 15.
