Following the disastrous results for Syriza in the Euro Parliamentary elections and Tsipras’ announcement of snap national elections, Greece’s former Finance Minister declared his intention on Sunday to run.

Controversial former Finance Minister Yannis Varoufakis, leader of the Mera25 party on Sunday night said that “today we saw the end of a European beginning for Mera25, tomorrow begins the start of the end of Greece’s crisis, which only our party can truly bring,” he added, commenting on the European elections result, which saw Mera25 in seventh position with 2.2%  according to the exit polls.

“We worked for three years, long before we asked for people’s vote, to mould our program with the participation of DiEM25 on the Green New Deal for Europe,” said Varoufakis.

“As of tomorrow morning, we are launching our nationwide campaign to present our all-ready, cohesive, therapeutic pre-electoral program for Greece,” he pointed out.

Meanwhile, Opposition parties have welcomed the snap election announcement with New Democracy declaring that “ Tsipras’ crushing defeat forced him to declare his intention to proceed with snap national elections.”

“Greeks provided the solution with their vote, and will pave the way for a brighter Greece,” said the main opposition in its statement.
