To Potami chief fends off Mitsotakis criticism

To Potami leader Stavros Theodorakis has responded to criticism from conservative opposition leader who said his centrist party, founded in 2014, no longer serves a meaningful purpose.

“To Potami will have a reason to exist until the country frees itself from the bonds of populist and conservative forces,” Theodorakis said adding that the party, now part of a broader center-left alliance, had helped safeguard civic and minority rights and expose corruption in the leftist-led administration.

In an interview with To Vima newspaper on Sunday, Mitsotakis said that “if To Potami’s existence was warranted when [the party] was established, this is no longer the case.”
