Bulgarian Govt Officially Nominates Kristalina Georgieva for UN Secretary-General

Bulgarian Government officially decided to nominate European Commission Vice President for the Budget and Human Resources Kristalina Georgieva for the post of UN Secretary-General.
Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov announced the news in the beginning of today’s regular sitting of the Council of Ministers, FOCUS News Agency journalist reported.
“We made great efforts – the president’s office, the ministry of foreign affairs. This is a highly complex procedure. Indeed, Irina Bokova made great efforts, too.
We gave her a last chance to see again how she would perform and what results she would achieve at the last voting, which took place on September 26. And the result is one position down. We have been outrun by many countries, including by other female candidates.
With regard to the feelings and general attitude there, it is good for the candidate to be a woman and from Eastern Europe. We believe that this [Kristalina Georgieva] will be a more successful candidacy,” Mr Borisov explained.
