Bulgaria’s National Assembly voted on December 3 to approve Prime Minister Boiko Borissov’s nomination of Denitsa Sacheva as Minister of Labour and Social Policy, replacing Bisser Petkov in that portfolio.

Petkov stepped down on November 29, his resignation requested by Borissov and accepted on the same day. A terse government statement said that it was not due to one immediate issue, but “based on reasons accumulated over time.”

It gave no further details about those reasons, but the statement said that Borissov “believes that the speed at which the Labour and Social Policy Ministry is working does not meet social and political expectations.”

Over the weekend, Borissov nominated Sacheva, who had previously served as deputy labour minister but was most recently deputy education minister.

The appointment of Sacheva was approved by 114 votes in favour and 106 against, with three abstentions. The votes in favour came from MPs for Borissov’s GERB and the two ultra-nationalist parties that make up the junior partner in the ruling coalition.

The opposition parties – the socialists and predominantly ethnic Turk Movement for Rights and Freedoms – were joined by ultra-nationalists Ataka, whose MPs otherwise back the government, in voting against Sacheva’s appointment.

Bulgaria’s Parliament does not normally sit on Tuesdays, but it scheduled a special sitting on December 3 to debate and vote the 2019 healthcare and social security budgets. The process is normally a lengthy one and the bills’ passage would not have been helped by the two-hour debate that preceded the vote on Sacheva’s appointment.

Socialist MPs criticised the reshuffle, with party leader Kornelia Ninova pointing out that it was the eighth ministerial change in the current administration, Borissov’s third as prime minister.

The now-habitual exchanges of accusations and counter-accusations followed, with the opposition MPs expanding their criticism not only to the government’s social policies, but education as well, given Sacheva’s previous government position.

100 Kilograms of Waste Were Found in the Stomach of a Dead Whale

100 Kilograms of Waste Were Found in the Stomach of a Dead Whale

A sperm whale that stranded and then died on a beach in Scotland had a ball of trash in its stomach heavier than most human beings, CBC reported. A 100 kilograms of garbage was found in the animal’s stomach.

Fishing nets, plastic bottles and cups, ropes, packing straps, gloves, bundles of rope and more were all taken from the whale's stomach. Experts are currently investigating whether the whale died from the garbage it has ingested over the years.

"All this material was in a huge ball in the stomach, and some of it looked like it had been there for some time," the Scottish Marine Animal Strandings Scheme reported.

Each year, around 275 million tonnes of plastic waste are generated worldwide. Between 4.8 million tonnes and 12.7 million tonnes end up in the ocean.

Experts predict that if the world continues to produce as much plastic as it does today, by 2050, plastic in the oceans will outweigh fish.

(the oceans will contain at least 937 million tons of plastic and 895 million tons of fish)

Sabah: China, Russia and Turkey are Natural Disasters for the West

Sabah: China, Russia and Turkey are Natural Disasters for the West

Russia, along with Turkey and China, is a "natural disaster" that threatens the US-led West. This is written by the Turkish Sabah newspaper.

According to the author, the pressure exerted by Turkey's political course resembles a tsunami. China's policy was comparable to climate change and Russia's to a hurricane.

The author notes that the new strategic relations between Moscow, Ankara and Beijing have again turned Russia into a centre of attraction. The country continues to expand its area of ​​influence in North Africa. At the same time, it has been building relationships with countries that are considered US closest allies, such as Israel, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Germany and France.

The newspaper emphasizes that Turkey serves as a "steel core" in the Muslim regions of North Africa, the Middle East, the Balkans, the Caucasus, Central and South Asia. According to the author, the country is currently perceived as one of the "most influential poles of the emerging global system".

The "real nightmare" for the United States is China, which causes real "climate change" in global geopolitics. The US must win Russia and Turkey to counter the economic war with the Celestial Empire. However, according to the author, this possibility is only hypothetical and far from being realized in practice.
