  • [01] Potami will not join government of 'anti-Europeanists', Theodorakis says

  • [01] Potami will not join government of 'anti-Europeanists', Theodorakis says

    ANA-MPA -- The Potami party will not join a government of "anti-Europeanists" nor a "soup" government, party leader Stavros Theodorakis stressed on Wednesday during a live televised press conference broadcast nationwide. He stressed that, as of next Monday, there must be an "honest proposal for the Greek people" and that Potami was ready to "step into the deep end" in terms of making changes and the negotiations with Greece's creditors.

    We are obliged to go to a second frame and talk responsibly about the country's future, he added.

    According to Potami's leader, the policy programme presented by main opposition Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) leader Alexis Tsipras in Thessaloniki last September was a "wish list". He also highlighted the contradictory messages emerging from SYRIZA, noting that this was a problem that its leader Alexis Tsipras must address as a priority.

    Describing SYRIZA members Yiannis Dragasakis and George Stathakis as "injections of reason" within SYRIZA, he said the positions they had expressed at times were serious and "not far from those of Potami".

    Theodorakis said Potami had a strong following and did not exclude different opinions, while clarifying that the party's European orientation was "non-negotiable". He also stressed for a "national consensus" in Greece, after first seeking a small extension, urging the head of whatever party came first in the elections to "call all the parties on January 26 and seriously discuss the issue of the negotiation, which will not involve unilateral actions and will have as its guideline the common good and saving the country."

    He noted that discussions "at gunpoint" were dangerous, since very important decisions had to be made and not imposed from outside, and that a responsible discussion with Potami must also include a social state that will alleviate the suffering in society and a programme to promote growth and deliver justice.
