According to reports in the Sofia Echo,
"EPP president Wilfred Martens said that it was unacceptable for a party to join such initiative and at the same time to be an EPP member. UDF should be a loyal member that carries out all of its duties".
Just doing some background on this and it appears the EPP have called Dave out and asked that he join them in discussions.
Gloriously though Wilfred Marten's press people obvious are looking ahead if the dates of their most recent press release are to be believed.
