Kasselakis: PM Mitsotakis ‘Mistook People’s Confidence for Immunity’   

ATHENS – Four ruling New Democracy-related officials were sarcastically named as ‘star performers’ who should be expelled from the party by Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, according to a social media post by SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance leader Stefanos Kasselakis on Tuesday.

The post included related video excerpts.

The four he listed were MP and Deputy Health Minister Dimitris Vartzopoulos (for comments about women); Europarliament MEP candidate Viki Flessa (for comments on the Tempi train collision); MP Dimitris Kyriazidis (for comments relating to sexual orientation); and former transport minister Kostas Karamanlis (for running for parliament after the Tempi accident).

“Why does Kyriakos Mitsotakis keep all these people? The answer is, 41%,” Kasselakis said, referring to national election results marked by a high percentage of abstention in 2023. “He mistook the confidence of the Greek people for immunity. This cycle of arrogance must break. And you are the only one who can break it,” the main opposition leader concluded.
