Kostadinka Kuneva is among the six MEPs elected from SYRIZA. After the counting of 7.8% of the ballot papers, the Bulgarian trade unionist ranks fourth in terms of the number of votes, following communist legend Manolis Glezos and current national deputies Sofia Sakorafa and Dimitris Papadimoulis, and holding the lead to George Katroungalos and Konstantinos Chrisogonos. Over 22,500 people voted for Kuneva personally.

"The problems in Europe are becoming more serious, poverty is increasing at a rapid rate, people are starving, and a lot of families are unable to cover their costs, even if they have a job. More and more people are in debt and do not know when they will be able to get out of the debt, without which they cannot feed their families. The educational and health system exist only de jure and cannot play the role for which they have been created in this society," Kostadinka Kuneva explained her decision to go into politics in her latest interview for GRReporter.

Last week she supported the protest of the cleaning ladies dismissed by the Ministry of Finance and she looked healthy and stable, obviously recovering well.

Let us recall that SYRIZA won the highest percentage of yesterday's vote for Members of the European Parliament in Greece, 26.7%. The second party, New Democracy, will send to the European Parliament former Minister Manolis Kefaloyiannis, journalists Maria Spiraki and George Kirtsos, football player Theodoros Zagorakis and deputy Eliza Vozenberg. Golden Dawn will send three of its deputies to the European Parliament.
