ATHENS – Main opposition New Democracy (ND) leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis estimated that on Sunday the citizens will vote for a huge political change. He said that if the Greeks believe that a major progressive change is necessary then they will vote for the only political force than can turn it into reality.”SYRIZA is a conservative force. It is a deeply unprogressive force,” he said, speaking to radio News 24/7 on Wednesday.

He claimed that the results of the European and local government elections on Sunday will deliver “clear political conclusions”,  underlining that ND is currently the only political force that can guarantee a major progressive political change for Greece.

“I am here to unite all Greeks. The dilemma presented by the opposite side (SYRIZA) – ‘with the many or the few’ – is deeply divisive,” Mitsotakis said.

Referring to Turkey, he said that if it continues to violate Cyprus’ sovereign rights then the EU should move to impose economic sanctions.

  1. Mitsotakis is certainly better than Syriza but that’s not saying much.

    Samaras was far more competent than Mitsotakis but ND undermined itself by choosing yet another Mitsotakis to lead ND. ND may win the election but it will be by slim margins. Most Greeks are sick of the old guard. Their ineptitude is why fanatical Marxist Syriza got into power in the first place and why other fringe extremist parties like Golden Dawn continue to get significant number of votes.

    We need someone on the right with the following qualities:

    1. Center right Someone that promise to make cuts rather than tries to bribe the electorate with promises of handouts (like Syriza does which is what is what got us into massive debt in the first place). Pro-business NOT pro-Marxist.tyranny.

    2. self-made wealth rather than part of a family dynasty.

    3. Hard line on foreign policy issues like illegal immigration and Skopian irrentism

    4. Pro HELLENISM (aka as in related to ancient Greeks — rather than the non-Greek civic nationalist identity pushed by leftist “Greeks”.

    5. Principled.. Don’t criticize neighbors for things that we do ourselves. Praise neighbors for things we do ourselves.

    6. Focused on technology and industrialization rather than tourism and agriculture economy. Without technology to boast productivity Greece will forever be a banana republic. It’s a national disgrace that the word technology comes from Greece and our chief claim to fame today is goat cheese.
