Bulgaria -Taxi drivers win victory over Uber -October 06, 2015

Parliament accepted a new law making it obligatory for taxi drivers to have certificates proving they have an employment contract with the firm they drive for. Critics have said the law is meant to keep out Uber drivers, who are not employed by the company. However, proponents said Uber is already illegal, because they drive cars that are not registered as taxis. Taxi drivers have welcomed the stricter regulation, saying it will address malpractice in sector.
