  • [01] No leader for SYRIZA

  • [01] No leader for SYRIZA

    The Secretariat of the Coalition of the Radical Left (SYRIZA) on Sunday agreed to head into the elections without a leader heading its ticket, as proposed by its main component party the Coalition of the Left, Movements and Ecology (SYN).

    Under the compromise deal offered by SYN's Central Committee in a bid to break the deadlock of the past two days, each candidate on the election ticket will seek to enter Parliament with the votes cast specifically for them.

    Of the 11 component mebers of SYRIZA, only the Communist Organisation of Greece has expressed reservations about the proposed compromise and will announce its position in the next few days.

    SYN's Central Committee had earlier approved the proposal presented by the party's leader Alexis Tsipras, who had stressed the need for unity in view of the upcoming election.

    The proposal was finally carried in spite of strenuous objections voiced by quarters within SYN, mainly by Fotis Kouvelis and the 'renewalist wing', who insisted that the party stick to its original decision of Friday, under which the head of SYRIZA should also be the head of its largest component member SYN.

    Tsipras's proposal came after two days of deadlock between SYN and the other components of SYRIZA, who refused to accept Tsipras as leader and wanted previous SYRIZA Parliamentary group leader Alekos Alavanos - himself formerly president of SYN - to remain head of the ticket.
