Movement for Change
Former socialist minister Andreas Loverdos has been removed from the post of Movement for Change (KINAL) parliamentary spokesman.
The decision was announced to him Tuesday by the leader of the center-left alliance, Fofi Gennimata.
According to reports, relations between the two had cooled after Loverdos made known his intention to run for the leadership of KINAL.
One day after SYRIZA's overture to the Movement for Change (KINAL), the center-left coalition led by Fofi Gennimata on Thursday rejected the idea of working with the leftist opposition ahead of the next election.
"Rumors about discussions with SYRIZA are no longer valid," KINAL spokesman Pavlos Christidis told a press briefing.
Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, Parliament Speaker Konstantinos Tasoulas, SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras, Movement for Change leader Fofi Gennimata and Communist Party leader Dimitris Koutsoumbas (l to r) on Wednesday attended a brief ceremony to mark Greece's Independence Day at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier outside Parliament.
