Cen­trist Po­tami was lick­ing its wounds yes­ter­day after an­other law­maker, Ka­te­rina Markou, an­nounced she was leav­ing the party be­cause she was “suf­fo­cat­ing” with the re­fusal of its leader Stavros Theodor­akis to co­op­er­ate with other par­ties. In a let­ter to Theodor­akis, she said she will go it alone as an in­de­pen­dent MP. “The mo­ment de­mands a re­al­is­tic ex­am­i­na­tion of the sit­u­a­tion, as so­ci­ety is on its knees and any reser­va­tions re­gard­ing po­lit­i­cal al­liances and col­lab­o­ra­tions, wher­ever they come from, carry lit­tle sig­nif­i­cance given that the coun­try’s sur­vival is at stake,” she said. Her de­par­ture leaves the party with eight MPs in Par­lia­ment. Ia­son Foti­las quit the party last month.
