Social democracy is useful to both Greece and Europe, says MEP Androulakis

MEP and candidate for the leadership of Movement for Change (KINAL) party Nikos Androulakis told Skai TV on Friday he was "a proud social democrat," adding that "our ideology is useful to Europe, to humanity and to our country, and by strategic planning it can bring better days for Greece."

"In order to reconstruct the democratic front, several deisive and progressive kamikazes are required," Androulakis said, discussing the direction of the party if he were elected head. The MEP, who has been a PASOK member as it evolved into KINAL, said that "healthy organisms must be renewed and evolve" but this must be done in a radical way yet with open and substantial political dialogue "so that citizens can come to us and support the effort, like they did in 2017."

Asked if he was in support of renaming the current party PASOK, he replied that he has "always been PASOK," and that "we can combine respect for our symbols, our history and our name, with the effort we have made since 2017 to include other political forces."

Party elections for KINAL's new leader are to be scheduled this fall. Also running are current KINAL leader Fofi Gennimata and former minister Andreas Loverdos, both MPs.
