Since the beginning of the week, the leaders of SYRIZA and New Democracy have met twice with the same ambition - to establish a government. Both parties have failed to establish a coalition government.
The leader of Independent Greeks Panos Kamenos said that it makes no sense to support the left anti-memorandum front of SYRIZA because without the Greek Communist Party (KKE) Tsipras cannot collect the necessary 120 seats to become prime minister. This became clear after their meeting that took place within Alexis Tsipras’ mandate to form a government.
It is not excluded that SYRIZA may receive the highest number of votes. Then, the only hope will be the unification of centre-right forces by Antonis Samaras, said sociologist George Siakandaris in an interview with Anastasia Balezdrova.
SYRIZA: We will not form a government held hostage by the Memorandum. According to him, the last elections have proved that the people want a left government, which will take the country out of the contract for financial assistance.
He called Dora Bakogiannis, Stefanos Manos and George Karatzaferis to participate in the formation of a pro-European centre-right front. The leader of Drasi said that the return of Costas Karamnlis would unite the right forces.
