Loverdos confirms he will be part of PASOK again

Education Minister Andreas Loverdos confirmed on Thursday that he will soon be returning to PASOK.

“It is a given that I will return to PASOK’s parliamentary group,” said the minister, who quit the Socialists in 2012 to form his own party, Pact for a New Greece.

Loverdos said that he has agreed on his return to PASOK with party leader and Deputy Prime Minister Evangelos Venizelos.

Loverdos’s party united with PASOK as part of the Olive Tree alliance for the European Parliament elections in May.

The group received just over 8 percent of the vote.

Loverdos suggested that Democratic Left (DIMAR) should be included in any attempt to revive the center-left.
