RESPONSIBILITY OF OFFICIALS FULFILLING FUNCTIONS
AND HOLDING POSITIONS IN GOVERNMENTAL ADMINISTRATION
The responsibility in question differs, according to the nature of a fulfilled function and held position. The broadest scope of responsibility is incurred by officials fulfilling functions of supreme organs of governmental administration (Prime Minister and members of the Council of Ministers). It is a constitutional responsibility (of penal-legal nature) before the Tribunal of State and a political responsibility before the Parliament. Officials fulfilling functions of central organs of governmental administration and holding other high positions (secretary and under-secretary of state, secretary to the Council of Ministers, Chief of the Chancellery of the Prime Minister), incur mainly political responsibility before their superiors and penal-legal liability before ordinary courts of law, e.g. for the breach of anti-corruption regulations, abuse of power and official misconduct.
