Potami leader Stavros Theodorakis on Wednesday ruled out the possibility of the centrist party allying with PASOK after its disappointing performance in Sunday’s elections, when it garnered just 4 percent of the vote.

“Potami will continue independently or it will break up,” said Theodorakis amid rumors of an approach from PASOK.

“It will not become an appendage to New Democracy, PASOK or SYRIZA. I ask all those people invoking mergers, bargaining, deals and group photographs with whatever defines itself as center-right or center-left to give up.”

Theodorakis has already accepted that the party failed to target the voters it had in mind, including unemployed Greeks and farmers. He has called a congress for the beginning of December, where members are expected to debate what went wrong during the election campaign.
