Kalina Krumova, who became Friday the latest Member of the Parliament, to leave the ranks of the far-right, nationalist Ataka party, explains her move with professional motives.

Speaking for the TV channel bTV Saturday, Krumova said there was nothing personal in her decision; she had thought for a while now about it, and the latest developments around party leader, Volen Siderov, simply accelerated it.

The MP, who is now independent, promised to not get involved in revealing any more dirt about the nationalists. She explained she had disagreements with Siderov even before the October local and presidential elections related to Ataka's election campaign.

According to Krumova, she had received more support in her parliamentary work from other parties than from her colleagues from Ataka. The MP gave as example the surrogate mothers' bill, saying she was left absolutely alone to work on it.

She also informed that she did not sign the nationalists' request to recall election results from the October 23 and 30 vote, where Siderov ran for president and suffered a crucial defeat.

"It is only normal to leave when one does not see any understanding," Krumova concluded.
