- Formulates the Bulgarian dream for the next 5 years
- The president declares himself a participant in the management process, his voice will be clearly preserved
When on January 19, 2017, GERB smugly complained at Rumen Radev’s first presidential speech, provoking the head of state to jump with the remark “You have one week left”, they could hardly believe that 5 years later they would leave with clenched teeth. the plenary hall, hearing that their rule was authoritarian and there is already an anti-mafia consensus in Bulgaria.
Rumen Radev suddenly them. Not only because I haven’t been silent for 5 years and I haven’t given up. But also because they were the only ones to repeat the double mandate of Georgi Parvanov. However, unlike the socialist, who can boast of two successes – the Triple Coalition and the Grand Slam for gas, Radev says that not just as the strongest man in the country. And as the new engine of deep institutional and value change, at the center of which is man.
If 5 years ago the air ace accidentally catapulted into the presidency, today he said he knows how to fly confidently,
turning the state plane from a lame TU into a state-of-the-art fighter
And he drew the flight plan entitled “Bulgarian Dream”.
Five years ago, Radev spoke in his opening speech to the Bulgarian. He excited everyone with his fiery words about the lost Motherland and the return of national dignity. Today he focused his 30-minute speech on those who must resurrect the honor and prosperity of the Fatherland – the people, the Bulgarians.
The focus of politics should not be macroeconomics, but man, because he is “the main constitutional value,” Radev said.
As a military man of his career, he entered his second term without undue euphoria – “the old regime is in the past, but dismantling the legacy of a power model will take time”. And set great ambitions – a national consensus on 5 goals. For the first time, the president formulated a national strategy from the rostrum of the parliament and stated that within it
will continue to be critical of the new government
if she deviates from the path. And it is followed by the citizens, the political class, the administration and even the media, which the president emphatically distinguishes between real and corrupt.
Unlike his predecessors, with the start of all his term, Radev is running as a participant in the management process, which must be “with the idea of the weak”. “I share the responsibility for the difficult and unpopular but necessary decisions. However, I will continue to be critical when I find the decisions of the legislature and the executive wrong,” he said. The missing smile of Prime Minister Kiril Petkov, who will be interesting to listen to in the plenary hall, only showed that Radev is not joking.
“The first precondition for the success of society is the freedom and dignity of the individual,” Radev said. And it is around this that he built the first national consensus – “the return of Bulgaria to the law.” All other good intentions depend on it. Without strengthening the statehood, our country cannot unleash its enormous potential, the president said. I declare who we will work with in the next 5 years: “The parties and politicians who share the cause in Bulgaria in order to establish the rule of law and
healthy and transparent media environment
to build an orderly state with responsible officials, you can count on the understanding and support of the presidential institution “. Radev suddenly told the parties that the opening of the Constitution for change should not be limited to the revision of the judiciary in a responsible and effective position. To show maturity in our conviction that the basic constitutional value is the man, the summoned head, and insisted on expanding civic participation in government and strengthening guarantees for the protection of human rights, because democracy needs “not just voters” , and from active citizens with ambitions for the future of the country and tools for their participation in shaping this future. “
For the first time, he put municipalities as part of this process, insisting that they be given a chance for economic and social prosperity “by constitutionally guaranteeing financial decentralization”.
Responsible parenting was the second consensus that Radev and the search for financial policies to limit emigration.
Charity cannot replace its care
The market and public relations cannot compensate for the lack of working social mechanisms, the president was categorical.
So logically he focuses on the third consensus – the cause of an enlightened and educated nation. We urgently need to invest in young Bulgarians, Radev called. With young parties and young ministers in 2022, the time has come for a generational change of policy. But notes of this change are not diplomas, CVs and years, energy, dedication and results.
Against the background of the terrible corona figures for slaughtered children and adults, for death rates and lack of vaccinations, the consensus on the health of the nation was something that everyone in our country wants to hear. Patient health is not a commodity, Radev said. And he instilled faith in both the people and the heartfelt doctors who have been on the front lines of the Covid Front for more than two years.
For the first time, the feelings and people of the culture are shown. Radev promises support to them as an irrevocable investment in the future.
In 2021, Bulgarians abroad realized that they were no longer a reason for the original national envy of success, nor
“dairy cow” – the largest foreign investor
And voters who determine the fate of their homeland. On Wednesday, they heard one more thing: state priority will now be “maintaining a lively connection and spiritual inclusion of Bulgarian communities abroad, as well as defending their rights and identity.” And here is the biggest “revolution” around the presidential institution .
For the past 5 years not only Radev changed “Dondukov” 2. Iliana Yotova added new content to the vice-presidential post. He took it out of the role of a seal for citizenship and turned it into the engine of relations with Bulgarian communities and a support for culture. Radev institutionalized this in the plenary hall. Not only with a special emphasis in his speech: “I also hope the long-standing idea of the Vice President to create a Bulgarian cultural institute for our communities to maintain the support of the executive branch.” But also the high assessment for Yotova.
“This is also the place to express my gratitude to Vice President Iliana Yotova. The challenges of the first term have now strengthened understanding and co-operation, and I believe it will continue to be so,” Radev said. It is no coincidence that his words were supported by a series of protocol signs. For the first time, the non-state head and the first lady with the vice president behind them entered the National Assembly. And the president and vice president side by side as a strong team.
Desislava Radeva’s gorgeous and stylish blue dress is not breaking news
We can make our dream of Bulgaria come true only with the knowledge, talent and united efforts of the whole nation, Radev said. I promise the institution is open to all who have ideas for a better future.
On Wednesday, Rumen Radev made a statement. Not as a politician, not as the father of the nation. A conscience and a guarantee of change. The pilot in it knows that raising his nose abruptly is no less dangerous than tilting it headlong. That’s why it was interesting to choose whose congratulatory handshakes to accept with restraint. It is now clear – in the next 5 years the presidential vote will be clearly preserved. And your word will be decisive in many cases.
