The party had cultivated a progressive reformist image with an emphasis on liberal principles, meritocracy, and a restructuring of the productive base of the economy with a focus on agriculture, renewable energy sources and tourism.
The centre-left is backed by citizens who are not represented by conservative or populist forces, whatever banner those forces may raise to lure them.
The move is a bid to end the political uncertainty of whether the government has the constitutionally mandated parliamentary on each and every vote.
The change directly affects the government’s former junior coalition partner, Independent Greeks leader PanosKammenos, who is about to lose his fifth MP.
The agreement was approved by majority, with the key votes of To Potami VP Yorgos Mavrotas and former To Potami MP Spiros Danellis.
Opposition parties are up in arms over the agreement and the allegedly nefarious backroom deals to forge an absolute parliamentary majority for ratification.
Barring any surprises the government will have a majority in favour of the Prespa Accord on the foreign affairs committee and in the upcomimg 24 January ratification vote.
Already in crisis, the small centre-right party was demolished by internal disputes over ratification of the Greece-FYROM Prespa Agreement.
the upcoming ratification of the Greece-FYROM Prespa Accord and the shift in stance of To Potami party is what is now causing unrest in the PM’s office.
Mr. Tsipras was greatly aided by the failure of efforts to unite the Greek centre-left – which sought to bring into a coalition Pasok, the Potami party, and the Democratic Left.
