Bulgaria's Kristalina Georgieva Unanimously Approved For EC VP

 
Bulgaria's nominee for the European Commission Kristalina Georgieva was unanimously approved for EC VP for Budget and Human Resources by the group representatives in the European Parliament committees, reports the Club Z website, quoting sources in Brussels.
Georgieva's hearing at the European Parliament was earlier on Thursday. For three hours she responded to 44 questions of MEPs from the Budget, Budgetary Control and Legal Affairs committees.
At her new position in the Jean-Claude Juncker Commission, Georgieva, who is the current European Commissioner for International Cooperation, Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Response, will be responsible for 140 billion euros yearly expenses and 35 000 employees.
