The late info on a possible recall of the European Commission (EC) delegation head in Romania, Donato Chiarini, came true. The official EC website contains a public announcement about a future contest for the position of head of the EC branch in Romania and Bulgaria.

The head of branch will be, in fact a sort of ambassador of the European Commission. Italian Donato Chiarini, former chief of the EC delegation in Macedonia and Cyprus, took over the position in Romania in November 2006, from the former commissioner Jonathan Scheele.
