DIMAR leader: Recourse to Early Election will Work as Redemption for the People



kouvelis124Democratic Left (DIMAR) wants the country to be taken to early elections because the people will be able to choose which policies they prefer, party leader Fotis Kouvelis on Wednesday told SKAI TV and estimated that the recourse to snap elections will “work as a redemption” for the society.

He also said that his statement — that if a party deputy votes for a Greek President against the party congress’ decision, his or her decision will not be considered a defection — was misinterpreted, underlining that with this position he did not, in any case, mean that the members of his party’s parliamentary group are disengaged from the party’s decisions.

Kouvelis described Bank of Greece (BoG) governor Yannis Stournaras’ intervention regarding the risks posed by the political uncertainty during the last few days as “wrong” and criticized EU officials’ “unacceptable intervention.”

According to skai.gr, DIMAR leader once again left the possibility of cooperation with main opposition SYRIZA open, clarifying that all the decisions will be taken by the party’s bodies in the first 10 days of January after the end of the presidential election procedure.
