After five days of protests and roadblocks by energy workers and miners who disagreed with the territorial plans for a just transition to a carbon-neutral economy, protesters and government officials in the name of Prime Minister Nikolay Denkov, Ministers and MPs sat down for tough 7-hour negotiations. The protesters and the government signed an agreement. The parliamentary forces became the guarantor of the agreement. It became clear that the document was not signed by all protesters. On Friday, it is still uncertain whether the roadblocks in Iraq will be lifted.
Prime Minister Nikolay Denkov said in a briefing after the meeting. The agreement is made up of 7 points. It will be submitted to the National Assembly tomorrow, where it will be put to a vote. The government had sent the territorial plans to Bulgaria at the end of September so that Bulgaria does not violate the EU's deadlines and is not deprived of the relevant financial resources, Nikolay Denkov said. Premier Denkov said negotiations with the European Commission would start from now, and said that this would unblock the process of negotiations between the energy workers and miners and the government.
