Georgieva Is Bulgaria's EU Foreign Policy Chief Candidate
Friday, 18 July 2014
Outgoing EU Commissioner Kristalina Georgieva is the Bulgarian contender to take over the EU's foreign policy, Prime Minister Oresharski announced in Brussels.
"I will support the candidacy of Kristalina Georgieva and will do what depends on me so that she is nominated afterwards. But this depends to a great extent not only on her personal qualities, in which I do not doubt, but also on the distribution of positions among political families," Plamen Oresharski told the Bulgarian National Television hours before a late-night summit.
He stressed Bulgaria would see "a good portfolio" within the Commission and also that he did not rule out Georgieva as likely to fill another position within Europe's executive body.
