She was not among the first four in the list of the party, which were former EU Funds Minister Tomislav Donchev and MEPs Andrey Kovachev, Maria Gabriel and Vladimir Uruchev.

"To avoid speculations regarding the upcoming announcement of all GERB's EU list... as I am entering a key stage of my PhD... i asked GERB's leadership" to be allowed not to run for MEP, as Panayotova explained in a letter to the media.

She is also leaving GERB's junior organization, of which she was a chair, as she is coming of age to join the main party structure in 2014.
