Social Agreement for Greece in Europe, or Social Agreement for short (Greek: Κοινωνική Συμφωνία για την Ελλάδα στην Ευρώπη, or just Κοινωνική Συμφωνία; alternatively translated as Social Pact[2][3]), is a political party in Greece, established in March 2012. It was formed by parliamentarians and two former ministers of the Panhellenic Socialist Movement (PASOK) who were expelled from the party after voting against the country's new loan deal with foreign creditors. It is led by Louka Katseli, former Minister for Labour, and Haris Kastanidis, former Minister of the Interior.[4]

In May 2012 elections the party won 60,753 votes (0.96%) and no seats.
