Bulgaria Summary


Bulgaria (110,993 sq km; approximately 8 million inhabitants) is a parliamentary republic. Bulgaria is one of the most ancient states on the European continent. It was founded in 681. Bulgaria's main exports are light industry products, foods and wines, which are successfully competing on European markets.

The Constitution is the supreme law of the country. The latest Constitution of the Republic of Bulgaria was adopted in July of 1991 and features all basic principles of modern constitutionalism. It provides for a multi-party parliamentary system and free elections on the basis of universal suffrage. The three branches of power in Bulgaria are the legislative, the executive and the judicial.

The Parliament is invested with the legislative power. The Members of Parliament are directly elected to a 4-year term on the basis of proportional representation. The President serves as Head of State, and is directly elected once every 5 years for a maximum of two terms. The Vice President is elected on the same ballot as the President. The judiciary is an independent branch of power and is based on a three-instance procedure.

Current environmental issues include air pollution from industrial emissions; rivers polluted from raw sewage, heavy metals, and detergents; deforestation and forest damage from acid rain; and soil contamination from heavy metals from metallurgical plants and industrial wastes.

Negotiations for Bulgaria’s accession to the EU are still ongoing and the country is likely to join in 2007. Under the terms of the accession negotiations, candidate countries are obliged to transpose the environmental acquis (Community law) into national law by the date of accession. However, in the case of very recent EU legislation which entails significant investments and/or infrastructure upgrades, accession countries may negotiate transition periods beyond the accession date. The negotiations with the EU on the environmental chapter of the accession programme were provisionally closed in June 2003. Bulgaria obtained transitional arrangements with regard to recovery and recycling of packaging waste (until 2011), landfill of certain liquid wastes (until 2014), shipment of waste (until 2009), integrated pollution prevention and control (until 2011), treatment of urban waste water (until 2014) and air pollution from large combustion plants (until 2014).
