Petsas Calls on SYRIZA to Expel MP Nikos Pappas

ATHENS — Government spokesperson Stelios Petsas on Tuesday called for the expulsion of MP Nikos Pappas from the main opposition party, SYRIZA, following the "revelation of a ruthless deep state during the days of [SYRIZA'S] rule" claimed by witnesses in a parliamentary investigation.

"Twenty-four hours after the revelation of a ruthless deep state during the days of his rule, [SYRIZA President Alexis Tsipras] remains silent. The questions, however, are relentless. Did Mr. Tsipras know about the existence of a deep state? If so, what did he do about it? Was he informed by Mr. Pappas, then a minister of state in his government and his closest associate? In any case, as a minimum example of respect for the rules of the Republic, he must immediately remove Mr. Pappas from the SYRIZA central committee and provide explanations to the Greek people," Petsas said.


THESSALONIKI, Greece — Greece’s prime minister promised Friday to extend a wall across all of the country’s land border with Turkey as he campaigned for the country's general election.
