As mayor, I have had to work with many different governments, I have always tried to solve problems in sync. Zhivko Todorov was born on September 21, 1981 in Plovdiv. Stara Zagora, Bulgaria. He graduated from the "Romain – Mayor of Stara Zagora" on BNT.

In Bulgaria, there has been talk of decentralization for many years, but there is no plan at the state level.

More powers are being transferred to mayors, but there is no funding and leverage to work with. A comprehensive reform of the state is needed, Todorov said.

In his words, municipalities are the most transparent institutions.

He added that they have long had a proposal to create a municipal police.

According to him, the local elections are highly majoritarian - people vote for individuals.
