Example text

He appointed his daughter Luidmilla head of the state commission on art and culture in 1973. Her efforts in this area reached its culmination in Bulgaria’s 1,300th anniversary as a nation in 1981 with a national celebration of the arts. As part of the celebration, Zhivkov gave recognition to the Bulgarian Orthodox Church as a codefender of the nation and lifted some restrictions on public worship. 22 ■ BULGARIA A Tarnished Reputation But 1981 was also the year that Bulgaria’s international reputation was seriously tarnished.

A political stalemate has often resulted from the conflicting interests of representatives of the BSP, the UDF, and the NMSII. ■ 43 ■ 44 ■ BULGARIA The Republic of Bulgaria has chosen, as have so many of the newly independent Eastern Bloc countries, a parliamentary form of government. The president, while officially the head of state, has far less power than the prime minister, the political leader of the party in power. The president is, however, commander in chief of the armed forces, serves as his country’s representative abroad, and chooses the prime minister with the approval of the National Assembly.

For his self-sacrificing actions, Purvanov won the admiration of many Bulgarians. He worked hard to turn the BSP from a tradition-bound Soviet-like organization into a modern, European-style social-democratic party. Although anxious to revive relations with Russia, he has also been a strong advocate for his country to join both NATO and the EU. When sworn in as president on January 19, 2002, Purvanov promised to represent all Bulgarians, regardless of their politics. A strong nationalist and dedicated reformer, Purvanov may be just the kind of president Bulgaria needs in this difficult time of transition.
