PA­SOK rules out co­op­er­at­ing with Pa­pan­dreou party

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

PA­SOK saidyes­ter­day it will not be co­op­er­at­ing with the Move­ment of Demo­cratic So­cial­ists (KIDISO) es­tab­lished by for­mer Prime Min­is­ter Ge­orge Pa­pan­dreou in Jan­uary.

There had been a dis­cus­sion be­tween the two par­ties over the last few days about hav­ing can­di­dates run on a joint ticket but PA­SOK said that the terms set out by Pa­pan­dreou’s party were un­re­al­is­tic.

Kathimerini un­der­stands KIDISO wanted mem­bers of the two par­ties to de­cide which can­di­dates should run in the elec­tions. PA­SOK felt this was un­fair to its MPs, who were elected just seven months ago. Top PA­SOK of­fi­cials also told party leader Fofi Gen­ni­mata they did not want to work with KIDISO.
