‘To Potami’ Leader Foresees No Government Formation in Current Parliament

Stavros TheodorakisPotami leader Stavros Theodorakis expressed his belief that no government will be able to emerge from the current parliament because of the way outgoing premier Alexis Tsipras handled the situation, following a meeting with main opposition leader Evangelos Meimarakis who was given earlier the exploratory mandate to form a government by the Greek President.

“Elections must be held as soon as possible with respect for the constitutional procedures,” he told journalists, while adding that they could have been avoided and taken place at the end of the year when the economy would stabilize.

The leader of Potami reiterated his view that Greece needs coalition governments and social consensuses because, even in the theoretical case that Potami could secure a parliamentary majority, it still wouldn’t be able to solve all the problems.
