Commenting article: Bulgarian Socialist Leader Stanishev Changes Plans, Remains MEP

Bulgarian ruling party chief Sergey Stanishev has surprisingly submitted to Parliament a request to be freed of his duties as a lawmaker in order to become MEP.

His move suggests a sharp turn in plans he has maintained over the past months.

Socialist party officials, who confirmed the report first issued by Focus News Agency, said Stanishev deposited his resignation as member of Bulgaria's Parliament on Monday, 17:34 EEST (15:34 GMT), in the last possible minutes he could do so.

Bye bye Stanishev. I expect soon a change on top of this party. Under such circumstances it is much better for a man who is not able to earn his living professionally to milk the EU cow.

His lips are moving but the sound is coming out of his ass.

Stanishev is Bulgaria's top politican, as a capable Socialist he could do a lot in Europe and promote Bulgaria's image there.
