They will be joined by representatives of the National Grain Producer Association and the Association of Bulgarian Fuel Traders, Manufacturers, Importers and Carriers.

This transpired at a BTA-hosted news conference here on Tuesday, where over 20 representatives of the transport branch also demanded the resignation of Regional Development and Public Works Minister Petya Avramova.

The participants in the news conference specified that the January 13 protest is not political and is not aimed at bringing down the Government.

Carriers from 60 cities are to participate in the protest, during which there will be no passenger and freight transport services, including services for supplying retail stores.

Also, trucks and cars will be positioned on specific locations across Bulgaria.

The protest will continue until specific political commitments are made along with specific deadlines for their implementation.
