Sofia. On November 8, following the request of Transport Minister Rozena Želilkoka, the Chief Executive Officer of Holding BDZ Vladimirs Vladimirov, Philip Alexjev, Chief Financial Officer of the company and Deputy Chairman of the Board of Directors Velik Zanchev resigned and the Minister presented the Committee on Transport, Information Technology and Communications on the situation on the railways. He stated that after the BDZ "Passenger Transport" report on the audit of the Ministry of Transport he decided on the resignation of the BDZ's management. Zhelyazkov predicts that this will happen by the end of the month. According to the minister, this audit will be the basis for an exemption or commitment. "There was a lot of speculation, I would like to divert from this question which would be the next board member or the next board member. There are currently no nominations because there are no decisions on this issue. The release is an issue and function of the audit," the minister said. As regards Plzeň Pšarov, Director of BDZ "Passenger Transport", the minister explained that Holding was not satisfied with all his papers and was very clear and certain to speak in accordance with his current mandate. Minister Zhejazkov spoke about the restructuring of BDZ and pointed out that BDZ had long had no reason to hold a holding structure. He said that this was his personal opinion and added that the decision had to be made after a serious analysis. In his opinion, however, the state must have direct participation. The Minister expressed his concern that it was a prerequisite for unsatisfactory BDZ's main activity and suspension of the schedule as it was too ambitious for the park's situation. Rossens Zhelyazkov provided information to the Commission on the state of the rolling stock. He pointed out that since September 30, BJZ "Passenger Transport" has 289 locomotive trains, of which 95 are insulated and 42 are of various types of repairs. The Minister noted that there are 30 electric trains and 726 passenger cars in the passenger car fleet. It was found that 414 of them are out of work. Rossens Geljazkov added that delaying public procurement in connection with the company's repair work has been delayed. "As BDZ says in front of it – nothing new," said the minister.
