The leader of DPS, Ahmed Dogan, is now and for the first time officially in charge of the party’s “economy priorities, investment policies and new technologies.”
The leader of the ethnic Turkish Movement for Rights and Freedoms (DPS), Ahmed Dogan, asked to personally lead the party’s business team.
The information was reported by the DPS Deputy Chair, Hristo Biserov, upon conclusion of the Tuesday meting of the party’s Central Operational Bureau (COB).
During two consecutive sessions, the DPS leadership had divided the sectors and the responsibilities within the political organization. For the first time ever, the DPS is forming teams assigned with concrete tasks instead of the previous personal responsibility of the party’s Deputy Chairs.
The leadership of a particular sector is also a first for Dogan himself, who is now officially in charge of the “economy priorities, investment policies and new technologies.”
In December 2009, Dogan reiterated numerous times on front of the delegates of the DPS National Conference that there is a lack of vision for the future, for the permanent inclusion of Bulgaria in the EU policies and realities. He defined the vision as a priority for all politicians.
In addition to Dogan, the business team includes Yordan Tsonev, Ramadan Atalay, and Iskra Mihaylova.
DPS had divided the responsibilities among a total of 14 teams with most of them led by politicians already working on the respective sector issues. The new element is putting Biserov in charge of the electoral development and communication policies of the party.
DPS further informed they will not support the proposed changes in the ruling Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria (GERB) cabinet.
