To Potami poised to welcome first deputies to party

Former SYRIZA MP Petros Tatsopoulos and Democratic Left (DIMAR) lawmaker Grigoris Psarianos are expected to join the recently formed centrist party To Potami after being named among the 60 non-party members that will take part in a “committee for dialogue” set up by the new movement.

Author Tatsopoulos left SYRIZA last year after a series of disagreements with the opposition party, but Psarianos, formerly a radio presenter, has not quit DIMAR.

It is expected that his inclusion in the list of those in discussion with To Potami, led by journalist Stavros Theodorakis, will lead to DIMAR chief Fotis Kouvelis ousting him from the party.

The list of 60 personalities includes academics, authors, economists, businessmen, actors, directors and journalists.

To Potami took 6.6 percent of the vote in the May 25 European elections.
