PASOK Leader Says Won’t Work With New Democracy, SYRIZA

November 23, 2022

ATHENS – PASOK-KINAL Socialist leader Nikos Androulakis, who has doubled voter support for the center-left coalition, said the country’s two major parties want his votes but not what his party espouses.

“Neither (main opposition SYRIZA leader Alexis) Tsipras nor (ruling New Democracy leader Kyriakos) Mitsotakis wants us to govern together. They want PASOK’s votes, they don’t want PASOK. A strong PASOK sets its own conditions, conditions for another policy that they don’t want to follow,” he told Blue Sky TV.

That was in reference to the possibility of his party being a kingmaker in mid-2023 elections if neither of the two leading parties get enough of the vote to rule outright and would need a partner.

He added that he will ask for a strong mandate from the Greek people so that PASOK-KINAL will shape developments, insisting on his position that he will not cooperate in a government scheme with Tsipras or Mitsotakis as prime ministers, said the state-run Athens-Macedonia News Agency AMNA.

“The people will show who we will work with,” said Androulakis, also a Member of the European Parliament, again demanding the New Democracy government and Mitsotakis reveal why his phone was tapped and who was behind an attempt to install Predator spyware on it to track him.

“Mr. Mitsotakis is absolutely responsible for this,” he said,  but Mitsotakis has denied his government used spyware and that he didn’t know that the National Intelligence Service EYP which is supposed to report directly to him authorized the tapping and that he wouldn’t have allowed it.
