Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras’ New Democracy Conservatives face a tough test in May 25 municipal and European Parliament elections against its rival SYRIZA.
If Greece bans the ultra-extremist Golden Dawn party, it will resurrect itself under the name National Dawn and still take part municipal elections, its spokesman told zealous supporters.
Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras has insisted that his coalition government aims to hold general elections as scheduled in 2016, dismissing speculation about an early vote.
Former PASOK Socialist minister Stefanos Tzoumakas, said he will form his own Socialist party to oppose pay cuts, tax hikes, slashed pensions and worker firings.
Although he’s facing prosecution, the spokesman for the Golden Dawn far-right extremists, Ilias Kasidiaris, said he will run for Mayor of Athens next year.
