The woman who lived with the founder of PASOK in the last 10 years of his life, sharing words, thoughts, images, emotions. With an excitement, with eternal devotion, but also with bitterness. Dimitra spoke before People about her Andreas.

Αko Andreas was alive today, do you believe that things in Greece would have been different?

I do not like interpreting Andreas. However, after I studied his work and I have lived for 10 years besides the leader, but also next to the human Andreas Papandreou, I am sure he would not have left things develop in this tragic for all Greeks way. And with the painful development, of the situation in the country, I am confident that only one Andreas Papandreou today could save Greece. But unfortunately he’s no longer here.

Do you feel neglected by the party that he himself created, by his political friends and his children?

It is clear that for most of them I am not wanted, a persona non grata. Because I was the person who became an obstacle to developments. Andreas was supposed to have left the political scene, but also life much earlier. He did not leave when some of those you mentioned thought he should - everyone knows who they are. Because a simple but also dynamic woman as I was, kept him alive for a long time, only with the power of love. And because everybody wanted Andreas to die they attributed to me the years that he lived longer. But the great love that I gave Andreas was ultimately his incentive to live.

Have you loved another man in the way you loved Andreas?

Never! Andreas was also the only love in my life. He was the absolute love and am happy that God blessed me to have lived it. Perhaps I was born to give love to this man.

Would you like to have his child?


And have you not tried it, while you were together?

No. The situation was such that it did not allow it: disease, hospitals, judicial processes, continuous elections, hard work, duties of a Prime Minister. Taking care for such a person was not easy.
