Ex-min­is­ter says ri­vals may need to co­op­er­ate

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

New Democ­racy politi­cian Dim­itris Avramopou­los, who took up his post as Euro­pean com­mis­sioner for mi­gra­tion at the be­gin­ning of the month, has in­di­cated in com­ments to Kathimerini that his party and ri­val SYRIZA may be called upon to gov­ern to­gether in the fu­ture. “In a democ­racy the pos­si­ble is de­fined by what­ever the peo­ple de­cide,” Avramopou­los said in re­sponse to a ques­tion posed by Sun­day’s Kathimerini about whether it is pos­si­ble that the two par­ties could find them­selves in the same gov­ern­ment. “Politi­cians and par­ties have a duty to find the most con­ducive and demo­cratic road to adopt the peo­ple’s man­date,” he said. One of Avramopou­los’s last acts as de­fense min­is­ter was to hold talks with SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras.
