Singer Sofi Marinova, who will perform this year's Bulgarian entry in the Eurovision song contest, may become an MP with the ruling centrist-right GERB party, a GERB representative has hinted.

On Friday, pop-folk singer Sofi Marinova performed "Love Unlimited", the song with which she won the Bulgarian Eurovision contest in 2012, in front of the Bulgarian Parliament. The song was also performed in the European Parliament on March 27, both performances being dedicated to the international Roma day (April 8).

"It is a high time we had a Roma Member of Parliament," key GERB lawmaker Iskra Fidosova stated after her performance on Friday.

Fidosova revealed that she has been to over 20 of Sofi Marinova's life performances.

It was GERB's parliamentary group and Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov who invited the singer to perform in the Parliament.

Marinova was chosen on March 7 by the viewers of the Bulgarian National Television and will become the first ever pop folk singer to represent the country in Baku on May 24 in the second semi-final in which 19 countries will take part – they are the only ones that can vote for the Bulgarian song. Of them, 10 will go to the final on May 26.
