Greek Kingmaker-in-Waiting Says He Won’t Gamble Euro Exit

A Greek political party founded less than a year ago that might end up deciding the makeup of the next government won’t lend support to any coalition willing to gamble with the country’s place in the euro, its leader said.

To Potami, or “the River” in Greek, is polling in third place ahead of Jan. 25 elections. It trails the governing New Democracy party and rival Syriza, which opposes austerity measures imposed as a condition of Greece’s two bailouts and aims to negotiate a writedown on some debt.
