Popova approved the request submitted by Prosecutor General Ivan Geshev to the Constitutional Court for the SJC:
"Let the CC interpret how we should understand norms that were adopted yesterday in the Judiciary Act and the Criminal Procedure Code because, in addition to these provisions, on which my colleagues in the Prosecutor's Office have focused their attention, there are others who are of concern and I have the opinion that I should be asked at all costs whether some of the provisions in the new PPC with the Basic Law in the country are in harmony. I think there are some controversial moments."
In her words, "there can be no control over the Attorney General in the way that anyone imagines":
"In a democratic country there is a separation of powers and this must be respected. The Attorney General, like all other magistrates, must be able to be investigated if he commits a crime. This is the right attitude to the judiciary, not for control. Who will control the Attorney General? We have a special body for that, the SJC."
She expressed her expectation to be asked by the Constitutional Court about the provisions concerning the status of the so-called. special prosecutor to investigate the attorney general.

"After receiving the second exploratory mandate today, it can be started again, metaphorically speaking. If "Democratic Bulgaria" comes out ahead and starts some more reasonable, respectful talks and negotiations between GERB-UDF and DB, maybe there will be a government that we all need. But in this situation, I do not know which will be the lesser evil - whether a perishable government with scandals every day, with disagreement and depleted trust, or the legal procedure - elections. This is the legal procedure and it is better to follow it, because it is always the lesser evil."
According to her, "most likely, someone has an interest in the political situation in the country being unstable and not being able to form a regular government, but stressed that he does not believe this to be because of a conspiracy.
