To Potami debates political future

Worn down by poor election results and anemic poll ratings, Potami begins its three-day party congress Friday with the aim of clarifying its political religion and coming up with a winning strategy.

Some of the centrist party’s officials seem to think this means replacing current leader Stavros Theodorakis. Pavlos Eleftheriadis, a candidate with Potami in the last election, on Monday said he will run for the post.

Analysts say a lot will depend on the stance of MP Haris Theocharis, a former general secretary of public revenues who has called for an overhaul of the party.

Theodorakis has avoided revealing his hand ahead of the event. “The congress is of key importance, but a good congress does not a good party make,” he told ANT1 TV Wednesday.
