The Chairman of Vazrazhdane Political Party Kostadin Kostadinov for about a year as an MP has managed to pay about BGN 110,000 of your house and car loans. According to the declaration, this happened “from a salary”. However, the amount exceeds his income as a deputy. Kostadinov, also called “Kopeikin“, has repeatedly told fellow party members that “as long as Geshev is Prosecutor General, we will have no problems
,” says his former associate Elena Guncheva.
Kopeck by kopeck – pay 110 thousand of the loan for the house!
Kostadin Kostadinov was elected MP in the autumn 2021 elections and was sworn in on 03.12.2021 in the 47th National Assembly, which continued its work 241 days until 01.08.2022 follows a caretaker government appointed by President Rumen Radev and a new election campaign. Daniel was re-elected as a member of parliament and on 19.10.2022 entered the 48th National Assembly, which continued work 107 days until its dissolution on 03.02.2023.
When he became a member of parliament at the end of 2021. Kostadin Kostadinov declared
BGN 183,764 in loans. In 2022, he makes several early repayments (see list below). Upon entering the last short parliament Kostadinov
a mortgage loan of BGN 114,924, and managed to pay an additional BGN 25,000 ahead of schedule.
Within less than a year, Kostadin Kostadinov, in addition to the regular installments on loans, has declared early repayment of another total of BGN 69,141. with the origin of funds – salary. This was done in 7 /seven/ additional declarations:
: 18 000 BGN partially repaid mortgage loan
: 2 641 BGN repaid consumer loan
: 12 500 BGN partially repaid mortgage loan
: 5 000 BGN partially repaid mortgage loan
: 6 000 BGN partially repaid mortgage loan
: 12 000 BGN under a lease agreement
: 13 000 BGN mortgage loan
In May 2020, the leader of Vazrazhdane
in the studio of “The Day with Veselin Dremdzhiev” that his house was bought with a 30-year mortgage loan, which will be repaid by 2049, and the monthly installment on the loan is BGN 830.
The monthly installment on the mortgage loan has obviously been renegotiated and amounts to between BGN 2,500 and BGN 2,700, according to our calculations based on Kostadinov’s declared loan values. By early February 2023, he should be left to repay. less than 75,000 leva. from the mortgage loan for the house in Varna.
What does Kostadinov live with after paying 9000 leva? Loans per month?
Parliamentary salaries are solid – over BGN 7,500. For the head of a parliamentary group and they have various allowances for length of service, participation in committees and others. However, doubts remain as to what they live from.”Kopeikin” and his family, after he managed to pay BGN 9,000 each. loans on average per month.
It is known that MPs receive every month “unaccountable” in the amount of two-thirds of their basic monthly salary or more than BGN 3,700. However, they are provided for assistants, consultations, expertise and other activities related to the work of MPs, and not for the repayment of personal loans. The reporting of this money, unfortunately, is left as a decision in the hands of the parliamentary groups and there are no reports on the unaccountable.
A prosecutor’s umbrella?
BIRD.BG contacted Elena Guncheva for comment. In her publication on Facebook from July 2022, she raised the issue of spending the party subsidy and the unaccountable monthly parliamentary allowances only on Kostadinov’s personal decision. Guncheva confirmed what was written on Facebook and revealed that Kostadinov told Vazrazhdane activists that she was not afraid of investigations.
“As long as Geshev is Prosecutor General, we will have no problems! “
According to the former MP from Vazrazhdane, the party collects membership fees, which, however, is not accountable to the National Audit Office. It was unclear how many party members there were, and even local structures had no lists of members. There was also no register of donations to the party.
before I was accepted, I gave 50-100 leva two or three times a month, WITHOUT a receipt, everything is written on flying sheets.”
The reports of Vazrazhdane NP for 2020 and 2021 submitted to the National Audit Office show that membership fees have not been reported.
We sent questions to the press office of the party “Vazrazhdane” e-mail. We asked whether Mr. Kostadinov has other incomes than those he receives as a member of parliament. We also asked for his comment on the allegations of Mrs. Elena Guncheva. No response had been received until the editorial end of the article.
Kostadin Kostadinov He has not once had contact with the prosecutor’s office. In March 2020, the Sofia Regional Prosecutor’s Office initiated pre-trial proceedings to sow confusion and anxiety in society under the state of emergency against Kostadinov. It was imposed on him.
of 20,000 leva, which was subsequently revoked by the court.
Then the leader of “Vazrazhdane” complained that he did not have such income and announced a fundraiser. “Vazrazhdane” managed to collect from sympathizers about BGN 40,000, which after the cancellation of the guarantee Kostadinov personally promised to be returned to them, but there is no information whether this has happened.
Dnevnik informed at the time.
The new data on the early repayment of the loan again raise questions about the income and expenses of the party leader, which must be answered by the KPKONPI and the Prosecutor’s Office.
BRRD maintains an archive and a search engine
for property declarations of power, which can be searched by keywords with name, position, institution, etc. The archive also keeps the old declarations since 2007, which are no longer available on the sites of KPKONPI, the Inspectorate and the National Audit Office.
