Last night was a big one for his staff SYRIZA, of all groups. The executives of “Umbrella“, of “6+6“, but also the group of executives gathered around Nikos Pappawith all sides gearing up ahead of the weekend’s crucial meeting.
They considered leaving immediately
One of the issues that occupied the discussion of the executives of “Umbrella”, who will leave the official opposition party anyway, was the time when they will announce their decision.
While everything looked like they would fight an ideological battle in its highest governing body SYRIZA and they would leave either on Saturday or Sunday, on Thursday night a proposal was put on the table to leave on Friday, that is, not to even attend the meeting of the Central Committee.
The reason is none other than the tense atmosphere that prevails inside the party and the possibility that the situation will escalate even more on Saturday, since information has reached their ears that on social networks there are supporters of the leadership discussing the possibility of attending the hotel where the meeting will take place.
Finally, in the early hours of the morning, the opinion prevailed that they should attend the meeting as normal and defend their ideas and history
Political criticism from “6+6”
At the meeting of the group of Ahtsioglou, Haritsi, Iliopoulos, 130 people took part. The reflection recorded about the course of the party was intense and the decision was to file a text of differentiation and criticism.
The “6+6” consider that the war climate and the political obsolescence of the space is the responsibility of the leadership. Thus, in the Central Committee they intend to express in a structured way their disagreement with the policy and strategy followed by the new leadership group.
In fact, they note that they will positively support their political proposal for the new composition that they will present, so that it becomes possible to overcome the crisis and for there to be a greater response to the needs of society in a serious and reliable way.
At the conference, the issue of their departure from the party was not raised, however, from what will be said to Central Committee and how the leadership will behave, will also decide their own future in Koumoundourou.
