Bulgaria’s National Assembly

As of today, 17 October 2013, the National Assembly is starting direct web streaming of the meetings of the parliamentary committees on its Internet site. The first meeting that could be watched is the one of the Budget and Finance Committee. It stars at 14.30 h. and may be followed at the parliament’s website, under the “Video” section.

The administration of the parliament has equipped 3 rooms from where direct broadcast of the meetings of the parliamentary committees could be carried out. The lawmakers have stipulated in the Rules of Organization and Procedure of the National Assembly that meetings of the committees could be broadcast in real time if the committees so decide.

The initiative is part of the consistent efforts of the 42nd National Assembly to open to the public the legislative process and the scrutiny of the executive power, as well as the oversight over other state institutions. It aims to provide Bulgarian citizens with the opportunity to follow the overall activity of the Republic of Bulgaria’s legislature. The plenary sittings of the National Assembly are webstreamed since January 2010.

A little about me and the blog…


I'm studying archival science (include records management). My studies bring me to Bulgaria for six months.

I have been to Bulgaria on vacation but I don't know the language, Cyrillic alphabet or anybody. So I´ll be encountering many new situations and hopefully gain some insights from them. Some of it may end up on my blog. But even blogging is new to me sooo we´ll see...
