A mainstream Minister, with an important portofolio (Tourism in Greece), resigned in order to become Candidate MEP in the 2019 EU Elections !

=> Is really EU Parliament considered as more important than even Government jobs, by nowadays politicians ?

In France too, former Minister for EU affairs, Loiseau, left her Government job in order to become a Candidate MEP...(It's true that she got, however, the 1st place in her team).

In fact, the Real Causes seem to be Other, in both cases :

- In Greece, that Minister probably felt that she risked to lose her Government job in the forthcoming National Elections, where all Polls routinely give the opposition winning the race.. So she prefered to take, at least a MEP's job for the next 5 Years...

- In France, it seems that it's part of a Wider Plan by President Macron to make a partial Resuffle in 3 or 4 cases, in order to appoint some more efficient and/or trusted persons to the right jobs.

EU Parliament and/or CoE's Assembly often serve also as a Keep Safe and/or a Cover up mechanism for various political manouvers.
