  • [01] SYRIZA leader accepts Tatsopoulos resignation from SYRIZA Parliamentary group

    ANA-MPA -- Main opposition Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) leader Alexis Tsipras has accepted the resignation of SYRIZA MP Petros Tatsopoulos from SYRIZA's Parliamentary group. Tatsopoulos had a meeting with Tsipras on Friday afternoon, after announcing that he had placed his resignation at the SYRIZA leader's disposal the previous day. The meeting was reportedly carried out in a "good climate," sources said, with Tsipras and Tatsopoulos deciding on a 'velvet divorce'. Tatsopoulos, who intends to keep his seat in Parliament, made his departure from SYRIZA's Parliamentary group official later on Friday in a letter to Parliament President Evangelos Meimarakis, announcing his decision to become independent. Tatsopoulos' resignation was prompted by strong criticism from within SYRIZA over his statements claiming a more tolerant attitude to terrorism within certain sections of the main opposition party.
