The European Parliament gave the green light to the nomination of Slovenian entrepreneur and just-appointed development minister Violeta Bulc as commissioner for Transportation on 21 October, the day after her hearing.
According to Delo, “MEPs will not need to vote on her nomination, since the main political groups came to an agreement on it.”
The Slovenian daily recalls that Bulc’s nomination “came after former PM Alenka Bratušek's nomination was rejected”.
