Zoi Konstantopoulou, Speaker of the Hellenic Parliament, announced yesterday her decision to join the new political formation Popular Unity. The former SYRIZA MP said that she will join Popular Unity as independent, and blamed Alexis Tsipras for the split of SYRIZA.
Konstantopoulou together with Yanis Varoufakis, were among SYRIZA MPs who have been attacked intensively by the mainstream media in Greece, and obviously, one of the main reasons for the split of SYRIZA, according to the Brussels-Berlin axis plans, was to remove them from the party.
Tsipras was forced to remove from the government some top executives like Panagiotis Lafazanis and Dimitris Stratoulis. Lafazanis is considered one of the "leaders" of the Left platform and took significant initiatives, from the start, towards the approach with Russia. Zoi Konstantopoulou is considered another member of the Left platform. Konstantopoulou, currently Speaker of the Hellenic Parliament, took significant initiatives towards the public debt audit, an investigation about the conditions under which previous governments signed memorandums with the creditors, and an investigation about major scandals concerning previous governments (i.e. Siemens scandal).
It is not accidental that the oligarchs in Greece declared a separate war on Konstantopoulou, trying to downgrade her role and image through ridiculous stories by the mainstream media. Konstantopoulou has recently brought hard criticism on Tsipras' retreat which led to the new catastrophic memorandum for Greece.
Obviously, the European bureaufascists studied SYRIZA's internal political “geography” very carefully, and one of the reasons that they insisted on catastrophic measures, fully aligned with the German leadership, was to remove the "annoying barrier" of the Left platform, according to the plan.
