Bulgaria -President vetoes automatic career bonus Supreme Judicial Council -June 14, 2012

President Rosen Plevneliev has vetoed a set of amendments to the Judiciary act that would automatically promote members of the Supreme Judicial Council (VSS), its inspectorate and their staff when their term expired. The amendments containing the so-called ‘career-bonus’ were sent back to Parliament for new debates and revision. The veto is said to come at the urging of Prime Minister Boyko Borisov, who previously stated he would not comment on procedures regulating an independent judicial branch. Other amendments not concerning the career-bonus, such as the appointment of new members of the VSS and the Chief Prosecutor, were not included in the veto.
