Recreate Greece (Greek: Δημιουργία, ξανά!, pronounced [ðimiurˈɣiɐ ksɐˈnɐ] - literally 'Create, again!') is a Greek political party.[11]

Founded in December 2011,[12][13] it is led by Thanos Tzimeros[14][15] and is self-identified as a citizen-centered political movement,[16] with emphasis on the rebuilding of the Greek state.[17][18]

The party participated in the May 2012 Greek legislative election shortly after being founded, receiving 2.15% of the total vote, short of the 3% threshold needed to enter Parliament.[19][20] In the repeat elections in June, it formed an electoral alliance with Drasi, a fellow liberal party that had finished directly below them in the May election[21] with 1.8% of the vote.[22] Recreate Greece also approached Democratic Alliance,[23] but the latter opted to run on the New Democracy list instead.[24] In the 17 June elections the combined parties garnered only 1.59%, a lower vote than either got in the elections the month before.[25] Drasi would later merge with New Democracy, while Recreate Greece declined further, receiving 0.53% in the 2015 election and 0.74% in 2019. The party's ideology has been referred to as classical liberal and tends to promote Neoliberalism which refers to free markets and too small government.The party's leader speeches and beliefs, has been described as extreme and far-right. He has said that the Communist Party must be outlawed and even that the Greek National Resistance was a crime. Also he tends to have racist views on immigrants and believes that Islam is a threat.
