Potami leader: A vote for Prespes Agreement does not equal confidence in gov’t

Potami leader said he will not give the government a vote of confidence, in his address in parliament on Wednesday evening.

Speaking at the plenary session debating a vote of confidence, Theodorakis said, “The vote of confidence rewards the government for what it has done to now and gives it carte blanche for what it will still do.” He added that “a vote of confidence to the government equals a vote for the Prespes Agreement, not the reverse; a vote for the Prespes Agreement does not mean a vote of confidence for the government.”

He also called on parties to agree they will not allow deputies leaving the party under which they gained a seat in parliament to switch to other parliamentary groups.
