Greek State Minister: ‘Resorting to Snap Elections Soon Is a Possibility’



FlambourarisGreece may soon be forced to resort to elections once again, Greek State Minister Alekos Flabouraris said in an interview to newspaper “Epochi.”

“Elections, like a referendum, are democratic processes that are necessary when there are problems, so that the people can provide an answer to them. It is, therefore, possible that we will soon have to go to elections,” he said in the interview published on Saturday.

He noted that elections are necessary when there were forced changes of policy direction or when a part of the ruling majority loses confidence in parliament.

“Let us not demonize the process. This is what the Right has always done in order to remain in power. The Left, however, has a different culture,” he added.

He said that SYRIZA will have to hold a conference to decide the policy platform on which it will seek to be elected, adapted to the new conditions, through an open procedure that include the social forces that elected the party.

Flabouraris also criticized the party dissidents that refused to support the government in parliament, saying their suspension of confidence cannot be understood.

  1. We just had a snap election of sorts called the referendum. If there is a call for an official election it would be best that it occur AFTER the new “reforms” are in place. Then we will have a fair opportunity to decide if we want this or another government. If coalition partner ANEL continues to fade into oblivion SYRIZA will no alternative but to absorb what’s left of PASOK and To Potami. SYRIZA has yet to fully evaluate the scale of damage sustained by Tsipras’ capitulation. But overall it is not looking good for the party and leader recognized to be liars and ill prepared to manage the nation’s affairs.

  2. “Elections, like a referendum, are democratic processes that are necessary when there are problems, so that the people can provide an answer to them. – This Marxist clearly has no shame! How does he as a SYRIZA MP dare to even mention the referendum and democratic process when Radical Leftist SYRIZA completely ignored the resounding 61% NO vote of the July 5 referendum, with Tsipras signing up to a memorandum even harsher than the one the electorate rejected! What world do these sociopathic Radical Leftist traitors live in?
