Bulgaria's New MEPs to Stress Refugee Issues, Eurozone Accession

Bulgaria's new Members of the European Parliament have cited eurozone and Schengen accession, the refugee influx, and the abolition of the progress reports of the European Commission as key priorities.
The MEPs gave a press conference Monday at the European Parliament Information Office in Bulgaria to present their agendas in the new European Parliament.
The meeting was not attended by all of Bulgaria's newly elected MEPs, with Sergey Stanishev and Nikolay Barekov being among the notable absences, according to reports of investor.bg.
Svetoslav Malinov (Group of the European People's Party) cited Bulgaria's accession to the eurozone as a key priority, adding that he was hoping that all Bulgarian MEPs would embrace this goal.
Iskra Mihaylova (ALDE Group), Chair of the Regional Policy Committee, also noted that the refugee influx and migration were priority issues for Bulgaria.
