Thousands protest in Bulgarian cities against Peevski taking over security agency

Sofia and other Bulgarian cities and towns saw a total of thousands turn out in spontaneous protest against the election by Bulgarian Socialist Party and Movement for Rights and Freedoms MPs of MRF MP and media boss Delyan Peevski as head of the State Agency for National Security.

The choice of Peevski, which caused dissent even among the BSP parliamentary caucus, was approved in Parliament without debate and with a scant 15 minutes between nomination and election.
