Former bodyguard and prime minister Boyko Borisov, whose party -- according to exit polls -- came first in Bulgarian elections on Sunday but without a majority, is as charismatic as he is tough.
But the dramatic way his first term ended in February makes it clear that these qualities may not be enough to tackle the deep problems faced by the European Union's poorest country.
And before he even tries, first he needs to form a government. After winning just between 30.3 and 33 percent of the vote, this will be a difficult task.
