THESSALONIKI – “Undoubtedly, we are pleased with the outcome of the initial round of elections. However, I observed that several parties and minor groups to the right of New Democracy garnered significantly high percentages,” stated Kyriakos Mitsotakis, the leader of New Democracy, on Saturday in Thessaloniki.
“Furthermore, I would like to seize this opportunity to address all our fellow citizens who hold the belief that there exist parties, particularly minor ones, or even non-existent ones, that can genuinely represent religious sentiment,” he expressed, emphasizing that faith is not confined within the confines of certain minor parties. “Faith and Orthodoxy unite, rather than divide,” he underscored.
Concerning the upcoming June 25 elections, he emphasized the significance of the ballot box, stating, “The stakes are high. It will determine whether we stay the course of stability and progress or take a step back.”
