"I think that the Constitution has this protection, and BSP has always defended the rights of women and children. We will now discuss the Istanbul Convention, "Popov said. He made it clear that when a Convention is ratified, it will take precedence over domestic law. "I think we should introduce such laws in Bulgaria that will ensure even better protection of the rights of women and children," Popov said.
