Stavros Theodorakis: "The country needs people who are determined to forge a stable path"

To Potami

Right now, elections would bring about upheaval. This scenario would endanger our getting the funds, for an uncertain electoral result, as we are not sure that elections would lead us to a reformist government, a government of change.

Stavros Theodorakis commented on privatizations in Greece, in an interview from Crete, and pointed out that precious time was lost, while the government was trying to please its political party executives. It has now decided to proceed with de-privatizations, while most of them, they don’t believe in the value of this measure. The leader of To Potami stressed that, in politics, there is no point in taking money in order to share them with your friends. He said, “What the country actually needs is a plan, brave politicians, people who know how to do their job, people who are determined to forge a stable path, despite any pitch. The country needs a government that has nothing to do with SYRIZA and ANEL.

Asked to comment on the possibility of elections, Mr Theodorakis said that “Right now, elections would bring about upheaval. This scenario would endanger our getting the funds, for an uncertain electoral result, as we are not sure that elections would lead us to a reformist government, a government of change. We cannot have elections twice a year. We are trying to fix everything we can from this bad governance. Let the country return to a certain balance, let the evaluation process be completed and then we can talk about elections.

Asked to comment on the scenario of cooperation with other political parties, Mr Theodorakis said that “To Potami needs to move on on its own. This talk over a potential cooperation is just a talk that pleases journalists. I do not care at all about this issue. It is true that we do keep contact with other political parties, trying to find things that we have in common. What really matters is that the society needs a new proposal, a center directed, reformist, progressive proposal. What we consider to be the serious center, the center of logic. However, this cannot possibly happen if we use old materials, through a renovation”.
