Greece's Potami party to sit in same EU group as PASOK

The two MEPs elected to represent To Potami in the European Parliament will be part of the group representing center-left parties, including PASOK, it was decided on Tuesday.

To Potami, a centrist party formed by journalist Stavros Theodorakis (photo) in March, said its representatives would join the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats because the group’s commitment to “tackling the recession and unemployment in Greece and the South in general is among its political priorities.”

To Potami, or The River, said that being aligned with the second-biggest group in the European Parliament would improve its MEPs’ chances of making an impact.

To Potami gained 6.6 percent of the vote in Sunday’s European elections after more than 375,000 Greeks voted for the party.

The two MEPs set to be elected are physics professor Giorgos Grammatikakis and Miltos Kyrkos, son of the late leftist leader Leonidas Kyrkos.
