Kil­tidis quits.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Dora Bakoy­an­nis’s cen­trist Demo­cratic Al­liance lost one of its five MPs yes­ter­day when Costas Kil­tidis quit the party fol­low­ing the par­lia­men­tary vote on the lat­est aus­ter­ity mea­sures. Kil­tidis re­signed from the party but held on to his par­lia­men­tary seat af­ter fall­ing out with the for­mer for­eign min­is­ter over her style of lead­er­ship. It is a blow to Bakoy­an­nis, who at­tracted three deputies from New Democ­racy to her party. Kil­tidis left the con­ser­va­tive party in June 2010 over a dis­agree­ment with leader An­to­nis Sa­ma­ras. It is ru­mored that Kil­tidis may now join the right-wing Pop­u­lar Ortho­dox Rally (LAOS) rather than sit as an in­de­pen­dent.
