Member of European Parliament, Nikos Androulakis, has been elected the new leader of the Movement for Change (KINAL) party.

Partial results announced by the party at 8:45 pm showed Androulakis, 42, leading former Prime Minister George Papandreou, 69, 68.42% to 31.58%.

Androulakis, a civil engineer, was a former youth leader at the Panhellenic Socialist Movement, one of KINAL’s constituent parties, and has been a member of the European Parliament since 2014. He is considered a moderate. He self-identifies as a Social Democrat.

Papandreou has called Androulakis to congratulate him.

The polls closed at 7:30 pm on Sunday, with just over 206,000 party members and friends voting, less than the 270,000 who voted in last Sunday’s first round.

The elections took place after the death from the cancer of Fofi Gennimata in October. She had been president of the Panhellenic Socialist Movement (PASOK) since 2015. Since 2017, she served as the president of KINAL, a coalition of center-left parties formed around PASOK.
