Bulgaria: Bulgarian Activist to Run in Greek EU Elections Konstantina Kuneva, Bulgarian trade union leader.

Bulgarian Konstantina Kuneva will run for a Member of the European Parliament from the left-wing Greek party Coalition of the Radical Left, also known as SYRIZA.

Kuneva, who tragically became known after being splashed with acid in December 2008 in Athens, will run sixth in the party's elections list, Bulgarian Nova Tv reports.

Besides Kuneva, who is a trade union leader, among the 14 non-party candidates who will run on a SYRIZA ticket in next month's elections to the European Parliament are a Roma activist, as well as journalists.

Among the 20 party officials running are MPs Dimitris Papadimoulis, Sofia Sakorafa and Yiannis Milios.
