“Neither (main opposition SYRIZA leader Alexis) Tsipras nor (ruling New Democracy leader Kyriakos) Mitsotakis wants us to govern together. They want PASOK’s votes, they don’t want PASOK. A strong PASOK sets its own conditions, conditions for another policy that they don’t want to follow,” opposition PASOK-Movement for Change leader Nikos Androulakis said in an interview with Blue Sky TV late on Tuesday regarding the prospect of post-election partnerships.
He added that he will ask for a strong mandate from the Greek people so that PASOK-KINAL will shape developments, insisting on his position that he will not cooperate in a government scheme with Tsipras or Mitsotakis as prime ministers.
“The people will show who we will work with,” he said.
Androulakis reiterated that it is necessary to shed a lot of light on the phone tappings case, for which he held the prime minister responsible. “Mr. Mitsotakis is absolutely responsible for this,” he stressed.
