SOFIA (Reuters) -- Bulgarian Foreign Minister Rumiana Jeleva has resigned and withdrawn her nomination for European Commissioner.

Jeleva, who made her resignation in a letter to Prime Minister Boiko Borisov, had been proposed as European commissioner for humanitarian aid.

But she struggled to convince the European Parliament of her skills or dispel concerns about her business ties in a hearing last week.
