He added that the work of the anti-corruption authority must be fully transparent.
GERB MPs Krasimir Velchev and Danail Kirilov presented the candidate as a jurist with proved skills who assisted in improving legislation in the 43rd and 44th National Assembly. Since 2013, Georgiev has led the Commission for Forfeiture of Illegally Acquired Assets.
