  • [01] Potami will vote for an agreement with creditors, Theodorakis says

    ANA-MPA -- Opposition Potami party leader Stavros Theodorakis on Sunday made it clear that his party was prepared to vote in favour of an agreement with Greece's creditors when the government brought it to Parliament. "We are absolute. The other parties and some politicians might bargain and discuss but we said from the first that we will vote for this agreement. If Tsipras and our partners agree on a text, Potami will vote for this agreement without provisos," he said. At the same time, he stressed the prime minister's obligation was to now get the various groups and wings within his party under control, and behind the changes and reforms that must be made. Speaking in Kissamos, in the Hania region on Crete, Theodorakis also denied press reports claiming that Potami was planning to cooperate with other parties in the case of elections. Among others, he pointed out that the parties that had governed Greece until now bore grave responsibilities for the current state of the country. "I understand SYRIZA's concern to put Potami in the same category as the other parties and consider that its opponent is one. But things are not like that. Potami was created to clash with the old. Every form of the old," Theodorakis said. He underlined that his party was opposed to partisanship, cronyism, lack of meritocracy and all those things that were continuing today under SYRIZA. Among others, Theodorakis expressed doubts about whether SYRIZA would be in a position to carry out the major changes that the country needed, even if an agreement with the creditors is struck. "There is here, therefore, a major responsibility for the europhiles in SYRIZA to clash with the populists and ideologists and help the country in a broader front for a European reorganisation and growth," he added.
