Two to challenge Androulakis for PASOK leadership at election in October

·

PASOK president Nikos Androulakis proposed a leadership election to be held on October 6 and 13 this year, during his speech at the PASOK Central Committee meeting on Sunday, June 30.

Androulakis emphasised the need to avoid prolonged infighting and declared, “I will not be anyone’s hostage,” criticising party opponents for “behind-the-scenes agreements and a parade of personal ambitions.”

Androulakis called for candidate debates and affirmed that he would seek a renewal of his mandate from PASOK members. Reflecting on his tenure, he acknowledged that the party had not achieved all its goals, but noted a significant reduction in the gap between PASOK and the two leading parties, New Democracy (ND) and SYRIZA.

Meanwhile, Mayor of Athens Haris Doukas and Pavlos Geroulanos have announced their candidacies for the PASOK presidency. Doukas has been signaling his intention to run over the past few days, setting the stage for a competitive leadership race.
