Bulgarian EPP MEP Surprisingly Quits European Parliament
Emil Stoyanov, who was elected MEP on the civil quota of the ruling GERB party, has unexpected quit the European Parliament.
Stoyanov has requested that his term is cut short, citing personal and professional reasons – desire to spend more time with his family, who is in Bulgaria, and dedicate more efforts to the development of the Evropa TV channel that he founded.
He held the fourth position on GERB party ticket during the elections for European Parliament members in 2009 and was one of the newly-elected MEPs.
As a member of the European Parliament from the European People's Party (EPP) Stoyanov was elected to the EP Culture committee.
Stoyanov has degrees in literature from the Plovdiv University, and the Leipzig University, Germany.
He is the brother of Bulgaria's former President, Petar Stoyanov (1997-2002).
Stoyanov is the founder and owner of Bulgaria's first news television - Evropa TV, and of two publishing houses in the city of Plovdiv.
