Movement for the United in Action Left (Greek: Κίνηση για την Ενότητα Δράσης της Αριστεράς abbreviated ΚΕΔΑ-KEDA) is a political party in Greece that is part of the Coalition of the Radical Left.[1]

History[edit]

KEDA was formed in the early 2000s, by a splinter group of major party officials of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE), most prominently Yiannis Theonas (former MEP for KKE) and Mitsos Kostopoulos (ex-president of the parliamentary group of the KKE and ex-secretary general of the General Confederation of Greek Workers).[2] However, Kostopoulos, left KEDA in May 2007.[3]
