PA­SOK seals vote pact with DIMAR

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

PA­SOK and Demo­cratic Left (DIMAR) an­nounced their co­op­er­a­tion for the elec­tions over the week­end.

The an­nounce­ment came just a cou­ple of days af­ter PA­SOK said that it had been un­able to reach an iden­ti­cal agree­ment with ex-Prime Min­is­ter Ge­orge Pa­pan­dreou’s Move­ment of Demo­cratic So­cial­ists (KIDISO). Speak­ing on Satur­day, Pa­pan­dreou blamed PA­SOK for the break­down.

Opin­ion polls over the last few days sug­gest PA­SOK will pass the 3 per­cent thresh­old to en­ter Par­lia­ment. PA­SOK and DIMAR had co­op­er­ated as part of the coali­tion gov­ern­ment be­tween June 2012 and June 2013, when DIMAR walked out be­cause of then prime min­is­ter An­to­nis Sa­ma­ras’s de­ci­sion to shut down public broad­caster ERT.
