“Democratic Left (DIMAR) deputies have pledged that they will not vote for Greece ‘s President of Republic in the current parliament, because the implemented policy does not offer the conditions of a consensual procedure,” the party’s leader Fotis Kouvelis told private TV SKAI on Wednesday.

Moreover, Kouvelis rejected press reports that preannounce DIMAR’s dissolution and its incorporation to main opposition SYRIZA’s ballot tickets and called them “figments of political imagination.”

He clarified that DIMAR is ready to discuss the conditions of a progressive governance for the country with SYRIZA under the condition of its political and organizational autonomy and reiterated that he is open to the possibility to meet with SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras as well as with political groups such as the Ecologists-Greens.

Kouvelis estimated that the government’s decision to speed up the presidential election procedure is in essence only a governmental move to declare Greek general elections.
