Borisov 3 Cabinet to Discuss the Nomination for a Bulgarian EU Commissioner Today

On the first government meeting of the Borisov 3 cabinet today, they will consider the nomination for a Bulgarian  EU Commissioner, according to BGNES.
During a phone call with the Bulgarian Prime Minister, the President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker urged the Bulgarian Government to nominate Bulgarian EU Commissioner as soon as possible.
According to unconfirmed information, Bulgaria is poised to nominate MEP Mariya Gabriel to replace Kristalina Georgieva on the European Commission.
Gabriel, a member of Bulgaria’s ruling GERB party, is Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker’s favored candidate for the post, writes Politico. The European People’s Party MEP would be the long-awaited replacement for former digital commissioner Günther Oettinger. She accompanied Parliament’s EEP Chairman Manfred Weber on a trip to Bulgaria in March that included a trip to see Borisov and party meetings in several cities.
Gabriel is vice chair of the center-right European People’s Party and member of the Civil Liberties Committee, where she has focused her attention on issues involving visa regimes.
 She has also done work on gender equality and foreign affairs. Her husband François Gabriel was a former staffer for EPP group leader Joseph Daul and now works for EP President Antonio Tajani
