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.
The European Commissioner for Economic and Financial Affairs, Taxation and Customs, Pierre Moscovici tweeted that a deal on Greece was feasible. “Agreement on Greece is within reach if all partners engage in good faith. EU Commission will push for this at the Eurogroup in Valletta”, he wrote on his twitter feed.
The caretaker government of Bulgaria will not engage in a nomination of a European Commissioner before the election, Prime Minister Ognyan Gerdzhikov has said.
At a briefing, he has made it clear he does not rule out a situation in which his cabinet has to remain in office for a longer time after the vote due on March 26.
At present, the caretaker government will not nominate a candidate for Bulgarian European Commissioner, announced interim PM Ognyan Gerdzhikov.
The issue was discussed with President Rumen Radev.
"For now, we will not nominate a European Commissioner. At a later stage, a European Commissioner might be nominated," said PM Gerdzhikov.
President Rumen Radev and interim PM Ognyan Gerdzhikov will meet on Monday to discuss whether an attempt should be made for the caretaker government to nominate a Bulgarian European Commissioner. This was announced by PM Gerdzhikov on Nova TV.
Gerdzhikov specified that Radev and he have agreed to meet every Monday.
European Commissioner Economic and Financial Affairs, Taxation and Customs Pierre Moscovici told reporters in Dublin, Ireland Tuesday that the Commission was hoping to reach a final deal on the second review on the Greek bailout program as soon as possible. Mr. Moscovici stressed, however, that completing the agreement would not “obviously occur on Thursday.”
