The former President of the Democratic Left Fotis Kouvelis has denounced the cooperation with PASOK in the upcoming elections, arguing that the decision was undemocratic.

Mr. Kouvelis argued that a minority of 35 Central Committee members supported the electoral cooperation with, in spite of being aware that 40 Central Committee members opposed such a prospect.

According to the former party president, he will begin calling meetings with party officers and members from all over Greece in order to determine their stance in the upcoming elections. Mr. Kouvelis noted that “the solution for the country must be left-wing and essentially progressive”.
