  • [01] Leftist party's congress

  • [01] Leftist party's congress

    The Coalition of the Left's (Synaspismos) central committee on Sunday adopted a proposal by party leader Alexis Tsipras for an extraordinary congress in the next three months.

    The decision was taken on the closing day of a two-day central committee meeting in a central Athens hotel.

    Tsipras tabled the proposal during the opening session on Saturday, saying that an extraordinary Congress is necessary for several reasons, including a crisis between Synaspismos and the Synaspismos-led Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) Parliamentary alliance, the smallest party in the legislature.

    "We have tired the people of the left," Tsipras, who heads the SYRIZA Parliamentary group, told the central committee on Saturday, stressing that "we will not organise a congress for the purpose of squaring accounts".

    Referring to political developments and the state of the economy, he characterised the government's policy as "disappointing".
