Nikos Androulakis, 42, a socialist MEP since 2014, has announced he will be a candidate for the leadership of Movement for Change.

He is the third candidate for the position, joining Fofi Gennimata, 57, the socialist alliance’s leader since 2017, and Andreas Loverdos, 65, a former minister and MP since 2000.

The election is expected to take place later this year; the timeline will be announced in September.
