The former Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis wants to run in Germany for the European elections in 2019. The fact that TRANS-national democracy was coming true, said the left-wing politicians in Berlin. At a meeting of party democracy in Europe, Varoufakis was set to the first place of a list for the elections to the European Parliament in may 2019. The party is a German offshoot of Varoufakis’ European movement Democracy in Europe, the Movement 2025 (Diem25). Varoufakis said he had met the requirements for candidacy. This includes, for citizens of other EU countries residing in Germany.

Varoufakis said he wanted to make in the next few months in Germany, the election campaign, but also in Greece and other EU countries. It is necessary to recycle the toxic myth that there is within the community of States in a battle between North and South, East and West. The only fight between the progressive Europeans and Authoritarian. Besides Varoufakis also candidates from Austria and Croatia are, among other things, on the front of the list seats.

The 57-year-old Greek 2015 was kicked after about a half a year as a Minister. He had tried in the left-wing government of Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, to persuade the creditors to cut Greece’s debt and prevent social cuts. He was kicked again and again as a sharp critic of hard-line, under the then Federal Minister of Finance Wolfgang Schäuble (CDU) in appearance.
