The outgoing Bulgarian Socialist Party leader Sergrey Stanishev who was elected MEP said he would not seek appointment as the Bulgarian European commissioner, reports

He, however, announced his ambitions to seek re-election as head of the Party of European Socialists (PES) in 2015, instead. 

According to members of the BSP executive bureau, Stanishev said the commissioner was a “highly paid bureaucratic position”.

Stanishev, who ran for MEP and for months claimed he would not go to the European Parliament, eventually had a change of heart several weeks ago and became an MEP. Last week he said he will resign as BSP leader in the end of July.
