Potami will present its new agenda to the public in September, its leader Stavros Theodorakis said on Monday, and ruled out the possibility of national elections this year.

Speaking from Chania on Crete, Theodorakis said that "elections will very likely be held in May (2019), but you shouldn't rule out September next year, either, since the SYRIZA-ANEL ruling coalition has decided to go to the end of their term - as all governments try to, between you and me."

Potami's founder said that his party would prepare for the eventuality of elections. "The country may be exiting the adjustment programs on August 20, but it's entering a narrow path that doesn't necessarily lead to development," he said. "A lot of effort, a lot of wise initiatives will have to happen to get real development past August 20," he added.
