Peevski, a controversial Bulgarian media baron, has said he will not take up his MEP seat despite a strong result by his party after Liberal group leader Verfhofstadt said he would not admit him to his group. Peevski will instead send Iskra Mihaylova, Bulgaria's current minister of ecology, he said.
