23 September 2012. Yane Yanev, leader of the small Conservative Order, Law and Justice party, RZS proposed a probe on widespread official corruption. The proposal to establish a committee was passed by 179 MPs voting for and 53 against. One abstained. The probe will be held by a committee of 13 MPs – six from the governing GERB party, two from the opposition left-wing Coalition for Bulgaria, two from the ethnic Turkish Movement for Rights and Freedoms, DPS, one from the right-wing Blue Coalition, one from the far-right, nationalist Ataka, and one independent MP. The problem of corruption in Bulgaria was highlighted by European Commission in a succession of reports. Like its northern neighbour Romania, on joining the EU in January 2007, Bulgaria was subjected to a Co-operation and Verification Mechanism by the European Commission, set up as a means to bring the two EU newcomers up to the bloc’s standards in justice and home affairs.
