Stavros Theodorakis was reelected the leader of centrist party To Potami on Sunday.

The former journalist received 88 percent of the votes cast at the end of the party’s three-day congress despite Potami performing poorly in recent polls.

A University of Macedonia survey for Skai TV published on Friday showed the centrist grouping on less than 3 percent, which is the threshold for entering Parliament.

Theodorakis saw off a last-minute challenge from Oxford University law professor Pavlos Eleftheriadis.
