Who is Dimitar Glavchev, the future caretaker Prime Minister of Bulgaria?

President Rumen Radev appointed the Chairman of the Court of Auditors Dimitar Glavchev as a candidate for caretaker prime minister.

Glavchev was appointed to his current post on 28 July 2023 by a decision of the 49th National Assembly for a 7-year term.

He was born in Sofia and speaks English and Russian.

The future caretaker prime minister of Bulgaria is an economist by education and one of the iconic faces of the GERB party, with which he entered politics as a deputy back in 2009. He has over 30 years of experience in accounting and financial control.

Glavchev participated in the work of a number of committees, including deputy chairman of the Committee on Budget and Finance, while he was an MP in 6 parliaments. He also served as chairman of the 44th National Assembly from 19 April 2017 to 17 November 2017. Glavchev took the decision to step down from the post after tensions arose following the reading of a statement by BSP leader Kornelia Ninova and her subsequent removal from the chamber.

On 30 March at 14.00, the head of state will receive Dimitar Glavchev at the presidential institution to instruct him to propose the composition of a caretaker government. /BGNES
