The decision to back Hardalias came after controversy arose over a video showing the incumbent governor, Giorgos Patoulis, dancing at an event the day after the death of two firefighting pilots in Evia, while numerous wildfires were still raging.
 
Patoulis had been elected in 2018 with the support of the conservative party. It remains uncertain whether he will seek re-election in the Attica region as an independent candidate.
 
Sources indicate that Nikos Hardalias, who previously served as the mayor of Vyronas for 11 years, has been discussing the possibility of running for Attica governor a year and a half ago.
