  • [01] Alavanos to step down from party helm

  • [01] Alavanos to step down from party helm

    Coalition of the Left (Synaspismos) leader Alekos Alavanos, who also heads up the Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) grouping in Parliament, toured the large island of Crete on Wednesday, a day after he announced that he will not vie for Synaspismos' presidency at an upcoming party congress.

    Alavanos, however, will remain as the head of SYRIZA's parliamentary group.

    While in the Cretan port city of Rethymno, Alavanos toured a local high school, later decrying the poor conditions of the facility, as he said, and calling for more funding of the education sector.

    Later in the day, Alavanos was due to visit the infamous Zoniana township in the mountainous portion of Rethymno prefecture, where a police convoy came under assault rifle fire earlier in the month - an incident that generated a massive police crackdown in the rugged area to stamp out cannabis cultivation, drug smuggling and weapons running, among others.
