German Liberal MEP Jorgo Chatzimarkakis, of Greek-German descent, will run for a Greek party in protest over Chancellor Merkel's austerity policies. "I've always felt torn between the two ... the German side of my heart is so ashamed," he told AFP. German Liberals are only counting on 2-3 EP seats.
