  • [02] Potami leader Theodorakis says his party will win third place in upcoming general elections

  • [01] PASOK leader: The elections' wager is the country's course in the next years

    ANA/MPA---PASOK leader Evangelos Venizelos at a live TV press conference on Sunday said that "the national elections' wager is not who will govern but the country's course in the next years".

    Venizelos noted that the question is if we will take a step forwards to exit the crisis and the memorandum and enter into the new phase and into normalcy or we will make many steps backwards and everything that we succeeded with the people's sacrifices will be lost "The question is if stability and progress or uncertainty and retreat will prevail".

    He said that the government on January 25 will hand over the country intact an beyond the importance who will be first or second in the elections more important is who will be third and will have the third mandate and will play the role of the guarantor of the national and not the governmental stability.

    The third party will have the third mandate and it is very important to have been tested and to have the experience to call the citizens to ask themselves who will be the persons that will go to negotiate.

    Venizelos also referred to Sunday's rally in Paris in the name of the democratic civilisation, against the blind hatred, terrorism and absurdity and expressed his support to the French society.

    [02] Potami leader Theodorakis says his party will win third place in upcoming general elections

    ANA/MPA---Potami party will win the third place in the January 25 general elections, its leader Stavros Theodorakis on Sunday said during the central pre-election rally in Thessaloniki.

    Theodorakis also noted that it would be a shame for democracy if Golden Dawn won the third place in the elections.

    He also attacked on SYRIZA, New Democracy and PASOK. More specifically, he said that while SYRIZA is accusing Potami of not having clear positions, "it does not know whether Greece will use the euro or the drachma in the summer." He added that SYRIZA members have no answer to the question of how they will find the funds to pay the debt, the salaries and the pensions, if they "break" with the lenders.

    Asked whether Potami will support SYRIZA or New Democracy after the elections, he said he will support neither party. Potami will support Greece, if it needs to, it will become the catalyst of understanding. Potami does not claim government positions, but seeks to have power in the Parliament so as to ensure that worthy and honest people will be placed in key governmental and state positions.

    Regarding migration policy, he said "no to Mr Samaras fear" and "no to open borders of Mr Tsipras." He asked for a single European confrontation of the problem with closed borders, European asylum for refugees and rights for migrants.
