Potami party will win third place in the January 25 general elections, its leader Stavros Theodorakis on Sunday said during the central pre-election rally in Thessaloniki, Greece. Theodorakis also noted that it would be a shame for democracy if Golden Dawn won third place in the elections.
He also attacked SYRIZA, New Democracy and PASOK saying, that while SYRIZA is accusing Potami of not having clear positions, “it does not know whether Greece will use the euro or the drachma in the summer.” He added that SYRIZA members have no answer to the question of how they will find the funds to pay the debt, the salaries and the pensions, if they “break” with the lenders.
Asked whether Potami will support SYRIZA or New Democracy after the elections, he said he will support neither party. Potami will support Greece, if it needs to, it will become the catalyst of understanding. Potami does not claim government positions, but seeks to have power in the Parliament so as to ensure that worthy and honest people will be placed in key governmental and state positions.
Regarding migration policy, he said “no to Mr. Samaras fear” and “no to the open borders of Mr Tsipras.” He asked for a single European confrontation of the problem with closed borders, European asylum for refugees and rights for migrants.
