Diamantopoulou is latest ex-PASOK minister to break from party, eye new group

 

Ex-Education Minister Anna Diamantopoulou became on Friday the latest member of the PASOK cabinet serving when Greece signed its bailout deal with the troika in May 2010 to make plans to create a new party.

Speaking to state-run NET TV in an interview, Diamantopoulou suggested that the Socialist party had run its course. “PASOK has no reason to exist anymore,” she said. “Today, I am like millions of others who could express themselves through PASOK over the past 40 years but can no longer do so.”
