From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Georgi Ivanov Kyoseivanov (Bulgarian: Георги Иванов Кьосеиванов) (19 January 1884 - 27 July 1960) was a Bulgarian politician who went on to serve as Prime Minister.

Kyoseivanov came to power on 23 November 1935 after a period in which the country had had three Prime Ministers in quick succession. He went on to become the longest-serving PM since Andrey Lyapchev and throughout his reign he also held the post of Foreign Minister.[1] The government oversaw the trials of the instigators of the 1934 military coup and also concluded pacts with Yugoslavia and Greece as Nazi Germany undertook a policy of economic isolation of the Balkans.[2] His government also oversaw a policy of rearmament after a treaty concluded with Ioannis Metaxas overturned the military clauses of the Treaty of Neuilly-sur-Seine and the Treaty of Lausanne.[3] Despite this Kyoseivanov's government was seen as little more than a puppet of Tsar Boris and, although it lasted until 1940, achieved little other than allowing the Tsar to effectively govern as a dictator.
