New Democracy leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis reiterated his call for elections on Tuesday saying they are necessary to “rid the country” of the “opportunists” that govern it. He was speaking at the first meeting of the party’s political committee before the inauguration of ND’s new offices on Pireos avenue.
“Only elections will rid Greece of the obsessive opportunists that govern us. Every day SYRIZA stays in power Greece weakens, lessens, shrinks. Political change constitutes an urgent and necessary precondition for the country to stand on its feet,” Mitsotakis said.
“It is necessary to stop the erosion of the institutions and government authoritarianism. Because to hide their failure, they attempt to muzzle and manipulate critical voices, independent authorities, independent institutions and the media.”
