Bulgarian Interior Minister and Deputy PM, Tsvetan Tsvetanov, has seemed to confirm that Rumiana Jeleva’s resignation as Foreign Affairs Minister has now been accepted.

Tsvetanov, speaking in an interview for BNT1 Wednesday, stated that the official decision to accept the resignation of Jeleva as Foreign Affairs Minister will be published on the governing center-right GERB party website later Wednesday.

Tsvetanov said that the decision was taken during a GERB meeting late Tuesday night because the government did not want to prolong the Jeleva scandal.

He added that it has not yet been decided who will be Bulgaria’s next Foreign Affairs Minister.

On Tuesday it was announced that Jeleva had handed in her resignation as Bulgaria’s EU Commissioner-Designate and Bulgarian Foreign Affairs Minister, but that Bulgarian PM Boyko Borisov had not accepted her resignation from her FM post.

That's a wake-up call for all the mutri and mutrachki out there should they feel tempted to enter politics. If you or your husband have gotten rich quickly and by inappropriate or criminal methods, don't run for office in the EU. You can still get elected in Bulgaria.

What is that kukumiavka Tzetzka going to say now? The retarded speaker of the parliament? She was so certain that Jeleva would become the new commissioner. She better eat her words and apologize for being stupid.
