Really that piece of shit Satishev? Fandakova indeed has done a lot for Sofia, she deserves it. But tell me what exactly did Stanishev do? Besides maybe spitting venom left and right. Please the editors of this site stop kissing commie asses in expectations of future privileges when the corrupt bunch of crooks come back to power.

Hahahahhaa,,,how many people voted in this "POLL"? Probably only one, Stanishev himself :))) I really don't think these polls have any validity, Stanishev is a relic of the past. Who in their right mind would vote for him? Communism is over, let's move on with serious politics and serious people.

Of course the real "Personality in the News" 2012 is again Boyko Borisov, but he wasn't nominated. Fandakova is only a second-place ribbon-cutter.
