Last Chance to Pick Bulgaria's 2011 'Personalities in the News'! Vote Now!
Our readers from around the world are invited to vote by midnight on January 15, 2011, in the annual "Personality in the News" polls of Novinite.com (Sofia News Agency) and Novinite.bg!
According to the votes cast by you, our readers, each of the three races exhibits a couple of nominees that are in the lead, with the neck-in-neck competition apparently set to continue until the very end of the voting campaign in January 2012.
The race is especially tough and exciting among the expats, with CEZ Bulgaria Chairman Petr Dokladal and M-Tel CEO Andreas Mayerhofer being tied for the first two spots; they are followed by Heineken-Zagorka General Manager Ruud van den Eijnden, AES Bulgaria Country Manager Peter Lithgow, and Sheraton Sofia Hotel Balkan General Manager Gerasimos Perdikaris.
Chairman of Deloitte Bulgaria Vasko Raychev and OMV Bulgaria Manager Director Teodora Georgieva are almost tied for the first place 5 days before the end of the voting. They are followed by UniCredit Bulbank CEO Levon Hampartzoumian, General Manager of HP Bulgaria Iravan Hira, and Metro Cash & Carry Bulgaria General Manager Emiliyan Abadzhiev.
In the tough race among the Bulgarian political figures, ex EU Commissioner and former presidential candidate Meglena Kuneva is in the lead, ahead of the Bulgarian President-elect Rosen Plevneliev. They are followed by Bulgarian EU Funds Minister Tomislav Donchev, Bulgarian Socialist Party leader and PES President Sergey Stanishev, and MEP Antonia Parvanova.

Who are all these people that are chosen to vote on? Except for the politics cataegory, every one else are unkown to the Buglarian people. Why is the list so limited, with only 5 choices? In eacch category, in a country of 7 million people, only 5 people are outstanding? THis vote seems a little rigged :)
