Kyriakos Mitsotakis Appeals to Greek Citizens for a Strong Mandate Supporting Bold Reforms

SITIA – New Democracy (ND) leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis, commencing a two-day tour of Crete on Tuesday, addressed a gathering of citizens in Sitia, emphasizing his determination to surpass the previous election percentage achieved in the May 21 elections.

“I am not content with settling for the same election percentage as before. My objective is for us to surpass the results we achieved on May 21.

However, we find ourselves in a peculiar situation where a larger number of political parties may secure parliamentary representation… This implies that the threshold for an absolute majority is higher. It means we must attain an even higher percentage to ensure a robust government. I have no doubt that we can achieve this percentage, but we cannot afford any complacency,” he added.

Mitsotakis underlined that “complacency is the adversary of our party, while momentum, embodied by our party’s officials, is our ally. They will strive relentlessly in the remaining weeks to secure a resounding victory in the upcoming elections.”

In conclusion, he stated, “We implore Greek citizens to grant us a strong mandate to implement numerous and ambitious reforms, which we have transparently presented in our program.”
