When SYRIZA announced the transfer of the two independent former MPs of MeRA25, Angeliki Adamopoulou and Fotini Bakadimas, the “flirt” between the two parties stopped. THE Yanis Varoufakis had issued a call for programmatic convergence, Alexis Tsipras had not responded, but this had not bothered the former finance minister. After all, the polls seemed to be some time away. There were members of the official opposition who approved this post-election cooperation. The expansion of the SYRIZA parliamentary group by MeRA25 officials gave an image of the party’s “fracture”. Now everything shows that it will be very difficult for the two parties to cross paths. This was also shown by the announcement of the party of Yanis Varoufakis, which is now on the path of cooperation with the People’s Unity which has been reorganized.

Unless in Koumoundourou they estimated that the party of Yanis Varoufakis will hardly be able to cross the threshold of 3%. So the infiltration to the Left was the strategy chosen after analyzing the data and poll findings that show that in Mavrommataion they are fighting for their “survival”. This does not mean that in SYRIZA they have left the center aside. On the contrary. To achieve progressive governance smooth relations with the PASOK it’s a one-way street. That’s why Alexis Tsipras, after the party meeting in Patras that raised the tone, from Thessaloniki and in the interview with ALPHA made it clear that he wants this feud to end.

New Democracy also appears to be putting pressure on PASOK. Even if the parliamentary paths of the former partners in the period 2012-2015 meet from time to time, as in the amendment on the “block” in Golden Dawn, the surveillance case “froze” everything. The blue faction wishes to have a good result in the simple proportional ballot box that will lead it to independence in the second round. This is what Marc’s latest poll on “First Issue” showed. Achieving a satisfactory rate necessarily passes through the center. And since the collaboration with Harilaou Trikoupis seems difficult, the “consumption” of the space might give quite a few benefits. THE Spyros Karanikolas, Apostolos Spyropoulos and Eleftheria Ftaklakis they marked the week that passed “passing” into the “lures” of PASOK. This tactic is expected to continue, thus Piraeus showing its strength and ringing a warning bell in Harilaou Trikoupi.

What could be the big secret of the two big parties? To keep some “hidden papers” for the second elections. Some last minute signings to give them the boost they need. And it is not excluded that these come from the wider middle ground which always tilts the scales in critical confrontations. In this climate, Kyriakos Mitsotakis still has time to decide when to call the elections. If it is not the 9th of April, a Sunday in May will be preferred in order for the penetration of the center to be achieved to a greater extent, but also for the economic climate to be the best possible.
