Independent MP Dora Bakoyannis met on Thursday with the Parliament president Philippos Petsalnikos and formally announced the foundation of her new party "Democratic Alliance".

After the meeting Bakoyannis told reporters that she had conveyed her party's aim, which was to act as a catalyst within the political system "so that we are all pressed into making the changes and rifts that will give hope to Greece to exit from its current difficult position".

"Our goal is national consensus, not in the sense of alliance governments but by seeking a common ground between the political parties while each side retains its differences," Bakoyannis noted.

Referring to main opposition New Democracy (ND) MPs that resigned from ND's parliamentary group but did not give up their seats in Parliament, Bakoyannis stressed that "Greek MPs are not pawns and report only to those who sent them to parliament, therefore they are accountable only to the people who voted for them".
