ND Leader: Today’s Greece Is Far from Being a Normal Democracy

MitsotakisMain opposition party leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis slammed Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Tuesday for government actions which he said violated the operation of Justice, during an off-the-agenda debate on justice issues in Greek Parliament.
Taking the podium after Tsipras, the leader of New Democracy (ND) said that in well-functioning democratic countries in Europe and the western world, everyone respects the principle of separation of powers and the full and complete independence of Justice, but this isn’t the case in Greece.
“Today’s Greece Mr. Tsipras is far from being a normal democracy,” he said. “You’re not the accuser but the accused in this debate for the worst lies ever uttered by a prime minister.”
Mitsotakis went on to say that for Tsipras “the end justifies the means,” adding that all he cares about is staying in power using any means available.
He also mentioned press reports in certain newspapers and implied the prime minister has entered into “secret bargains” with publishers for positive media coverage. “Why does the opponent of vested interests meets secretly with a representative of vested interests? And why so many meetings? To tell him ‘No?’” Mitsotakis asked.
“You’re a government in tatters. You want to criminalize political life,” the ND leader added.
He then criticized the “so-called humanism” of the Left, saying that it has “crumbled in the muds of Idomeni.”
