Democratic Left leader Fotis Kouvelis has informed the President of Parliament Vangelis Meimarakis that Odysseas Voudouris and Paris Moutsinas have been ousted from his party’s parliamentary group.

In his letter Mr. Kouvelis explains that “the two MPs have systematically and regularly differentiated themselves from the party’s positions and initiatives, they have clashed with the established functions and directions of the Democratic Left’s parliamentary group”.

The Democratic Lect leader further details that “with respect to different opinions, we have exhausted all possibilities for their remaining in the parliamentary group, despite the apparent contempt for our collective decisions. What is clear is that the two MPs don’t simply express different opinions, but support a different political plan than that of the Democratic Left”.
