Bulgaria now has a transparent Council of ministers
The system for legal information of the Council of ministers – PRIS is now accessible to the general public. All decrees, orders and decisions taken by the governments of the Republic of Bulgaria since 1990 can be accessed by citizens on the website pris.government.bg or through the link on the website of the Council of ministers – government.bg.
The opening of the legal information system to the citizens was ordered by the prime minister Boiko Borisov. His goal is to ease the access to information as a guarantee for the will of the government for transparency.
A large part of the actions of the Council of ministers remained unknown for society so far, because they weren’t necessarily published. The press office of the Council of ministers pointed out that they included numerous decisions of interest for the citizens, including the division of activities financed by the municipal budgets; the university student admission; the university taxes, etc.
The system will begin functioning shortly due to the great public interest. It’s currently undergoing refinement.
