According to caretaker Minister of Transport, Information Technology and Communications Hristo Alexiev, the Borisov 2 cabinet intended to cover debts of the Bulgarian State Railways with money from the Sofia Airport concession and overstated the influence of the criterion related to single concession fee at the expense of other important indicators such as investments, development and security.
