“In the elections I will be with the party of SYRIZA and its visions. Neither the Platform nor those who are at the Maximos Mansion expressed the party’s visions”, said the MEP and historic members of SYRIZA, Manolis Glezos.

“This agreement is unacceptable. The comrades should react to the choices of the single party. I urge the leadership to reconsider. This is a choice of the leadership of the party”, Glezos said on MEGA television.

“SYRIZA is an organisation. The single party has split into three. Those at the Maximos Mansion, Lafazani’s group and the Central Committee. I hope Tsipras identifies with his story and to extricate himself from certain situations created in Maximos”, he added.

On the possibility of taking part in Lafazanis’ party, he noted: “I have said that for me the form of currency does not undermine the role of the currency. In the elections I with be the party of SYRIZA and its visions. Neither the platform nor those who are at the Maximos express the party’s visions”.

Glezos stressed that “the master are the members of the party and they must be heard”.

He also said that some people have told him to shut up. “Some have told some ‘shut up'”. What does the old man want to get involved and I answer them with sayings of Solon, that the citizen has an obligation to get involved with the matters of the state”, he said.
