I’m sorry to speak sadly.
But the truth is that when I was running for office, I didn’t imagine that, two days before the election, the situation would have gotten so out of hand.
I’ve been holding back all this week on purpose, because I don’t want to feed all this tension.
I support my competitor in public, I hear “you didn’t support me”.
I see every video of her pointing her arrows at me, as if I were Mitsotakis.
I call her Efi, as I always call Alexis Alexis, and instead of a hand of friendship she considers it an understatement.
I see that she is circulating scenarios, that I was a collaborator of Mitsotakis, and who refutes her? Yannis Pretenderis!
I am forced to say that I addressed Efi Ahtsioglou in July, shortly after her nomination, sending suggestions to put, if she wanted, on her schedule. To help. To discuss. To be present.
It is in this here paper, which I am making public.
She never answered me – that’s her right – but I considered it my moral obligation to contribute to her struggle.
I had no self-purpose for self-promotion. I wanted “together” and I didn’t find it.
This “togetherness” I ask of you.
I emphasize the word: UNITY
You are its guarantors.
SYRIZA is only yours.
I appeal for. Tone it down. Vote for whoever you want on Sunday. Feel the need for the person next to you to vote the opposite of you.
We are PARTNERS.
This is a great word.
We don’t spread it.
This word from Monday will unite us.
This word is engraved Left in our heart.
