Former Athens Mayor Rejoins New Democracy Party

kaklamanisFormer Athens Mayor Nikitas Kaklamanis has rejoined the governing New Democracy party, bringing the parliamentary majority of the Greek coalition government to 155 MPs.
Kaklamanis had been removed from the party in March after refusing to back a liberalization bill, while he went against the party’s directives once again in May’s Municipality elections. He decided to run for Mayor of Athens, when New Democracy had already selected their official candidate, Aris Spiliotopoulos.
His return to the party comes after a written request to New Democracy’s leader and Prime Minister, Antonis Samaras.
New Democracy now holds 127 seats in the Greek Parliament and PASOK 28, granting the coalition government more than the 151 seats it needs for a majority.
