Pavel Shopov, the MP for Ataka, was nominated for deputy transportation minister in charge of information technologies.

Except for his extreme nationalist views, Shopov is also known for his inability to put on a pair of simple headphones.

In  response to a video of the incident, which circulates on YouTube, Shopov explained that he did not put on the headphones properly on purpose because he felt squeamish the cushions had not been changed. He added that a former girlfriend texted him he looked very "sweet" with the headphones.

When Shopov was an MP in the 40th National Assembly he vehemently opposed plans to start a digital edition of  State Gazette, this country's official paper through which all laws are disseminated. At that time he said he opposed the plans to render it into the hands of an "American company." Asked which company he was referring to, he answered: "The Internet."

At last report Shopov's nomination for the senior IT job has been withdrawn.
