New Bulgarian European Commissioner Nominee Making Good Impressions

Well after the saga of the previous candidate Roumyana Zheleva anyone would be seen as a better option. Kristalina Georgieva certainly has made a good start and impressed with sincere promises, but then what politician hasn't before being elected? Am I really such a sceptic when it comes to politicians who make promises and break them once in power? If so, tell me one politician who hasn't.

Kristalina Georgieva -- Bulgaria's nominee to be the new EU Commissioner for International Co-operation, Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Prevention -- is expected to be approved for the post following a flawless performance at her confirmation hearing before the European Parliament (EP) on Wednesday (February 3rd).
"For those in need around the world, this is the most important portfolio," she said in her opening remarks at the three-hour session. The 56-year-old scholar and economist pledged to become "the voice of the voiceless" within the European Commission (EC).
