Bulgarian Commissioner-designate withdraws

I said "watch this space...." in my previous post. Bulgarian Commissioner-designate Jeleva has just withdrawn her candidacy

Common sense has prevailed. The issue was her competence. She did not give a good account of herself at her hearing and I think she has made the right move.

It is important that the European Parliament has confidence in the candidates for the new Commission and it was clearly the case that Mrs Jeleva did not enjoy the support of MEPs.

This is a victory for accountability to the European Parliament.
