How is he a business leader if he is a head of a non-profit?

By virtue of being American the most powerful economy of Earth.

Of course at least part of the irony is that he just got his arse in a sling.

A bit of overeagerness among the Bulgarians.

Actually the Bulgarian president is like the Queen of England - he has no decision powers.

Bulgaria Tries Once Again to Register Cyrillic Domain Name

Bulgaria may apply once again for receiving the ".бг" Internet domain suffix for which it was snubbed on several occasions by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).

Bulgaria still has opportunities available to register its desired suffix, according to the country's newly appointed Deputy Minister of Transport, Information Technologies and Communications, Valeri Borisov.

Even though Bulgaria has no more options available to register its ".бг" domain suffix as far as the fast-track procedure is concerned, Bulgaria may still try the longer procedure, Borisov explained on Monday, as cited by the Bulgarian BGNES news agency.

Borisov added that he hoped there would be Bulgarian websites with Cyrillic domain extensions within 2 or 3 years, even though he stated one should not be "overly optimistic."

In March 2011, ICANN technically rejected Bulgaria's second attempt to register a domain name in Cyrillic with a ".бг" suffix, saying the country had slim chances for that. ICANN had already refused to accept Bulgaria's proposal for a domain name in Cyrillic with a "бг" suffix in May 2010, citing the similarity with Brazil's domain name with a ".br" suffix as the reason for the rejection.
