Former Greek Minister of Finance Yanis Varoufakis was selected on Sunday as a candidate of his party Democracy in Europe Movement 2025 (DiEM25) for the European elections in Germany.
“I accept (the nomination) because it epitomizes the new trans-national politics we need in Europe,” he told a news conference in Berlin where his colleagues unfurled a banner with the slogan “European Spring”.
“I call on all of you to join us in this pan-European quest for democracy in Europe, democracy in Germany as a condition for prosperity and authentic democracy,” he said.
Replying to a question on the possibility of electoral alliances, Varoufakis said: “We are open — but the program comes first”.
