The decision of the SYRIZA conference, which confirmed its founding
declaration, repeated the longstanding rejection of searching for
political alliances with the center-left. We believe that applies--much
more so!--to alliances with the center-right.
ANEL’s conditions for being part of the coalition government contradict
the mood of a large part of SYRIZA's membership. They will also act as a
transmission belt through which the system will put its pressures onto
the government of the left.
I do not agree with this analysis. It is actually the center-left that
is more problematic than ANEL. We know that ANEL broke with New
Democracy over austerity. New Democracy and PASOK, the Greek version of
the Republican and Democratic parties, were united on selling public
property to the highest bidder. If PASOK representatives were at the
bargaining table alongside SYRIZA, they would be favoring the sale of
the Piraeus port to China.
