Greek elections

Panagiotis Lafazanis, head of the Popular Unity, and Alekos Alavanos, head of the Plan B, met on Sunday and decided on the cooperation between the two parties in order to establish an anti-memorandum front that will have "strong stigma in the next parliament."

As Panagiotis Lafazanis noted, the goal of the two parties is to open roads of cooperation together, under the Popular Unity, for a front that they seek to form against memorandums. Alekos Alavanos spoke about the need of the country to be freed from the constraints of the euro and the creditors.

"I sincerely hope we can revive the flame of the revolutionary creation that existed some years ago in SYRIZA, we can disengage and liberate the country from the constraints imposed by the euro and the creditors, we can make the country a work cell", Alavanos said.

For this goal, he added, Popular Unity led by Panagiotis Lafazanis will play its role. He will inform the members of Plan B about the agreement, and expressed confidence that it will be approved overwhelmingly.


Alekos Alavanos was elected to the European Parliament in 1981 with the Communist Party of Greece and again in 1989, 1994 and 1999 with Synaspismos.

In the 2004 Greek legislative election, Alavanos was elected MP in Athens. Since Nikos Konstantopoulos, his predecessor in Synaspismos' leadership, announced his intention not to be a candidate for another term, Alavanos announced his own candidacy for the office. The party congress elected him president on 12 December 2004.

In the 2007 Greek legislative election, running as leader of SYRIZA, which more than doubled its parliamentary seats, he was narrowly elected an MP in Heraklion, Crete.

In 27 November 2007, Alavanos announced that he would not apply for a renewal of his presidency of Synaspismos at its 5th party congress in February 2008, due to private reasons. He was replaced by Alexis Tsipras.

In February 2011 he left Synaspismos and founded the Front of Solidarity and Overthrow with other former members of Coalition of the Radical Left. Communist Organization of Greece, Internationalist Workers' Left, Movement for the United in Action Left and Anticapitalist Political Group joined the front, but they left it in 2012 due to political disputes.

He again founded a new political party in 2013, founding Plan B specifically to contest the 2014 European Parliament election in Greece. The party's platform is centered on exiting Greece from the eurozone.


It is also worth to note that for many people in Greece, Alavanos is considered mentor of Alexis Tsipras.

Other political formations of the far Left, like ANTARSYA, are in talks with Popular Unity to cooperate and join forces for the snap elections in Greece.
