PM Mitsotakis Marks 46th Anniversary of New Democracy

ATHENS — Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Sunday posted a message on Facebook to mark the 46th anniversary since the foundation of his party, New Democracy.

"Forty-six years. Very few compared to the many things we achieved. And fewer still before the many more things we can do. We will achieve them next to every Greek woman and man. Happy birthday New Democracy!" the prime minister said.

A party announcement issued earlier noted that the party founded by Constantine Karamanlis 46 years earlier "changed the course of Greece", establishing democracy and securing its place within the European Union, contrary to the main opposition and the prevailing populism of that time.

"With 46 years of a relationship of trust with the citizens as its legacy and the interests of the country as its steady compass, New Democracy is at the country's helm, facing multiple challenges. Together we will turn them into opportunities for dynamic recovery with national unity, seriousness, responsibility and hard work," the announcement said.



ATHENS - Panagiotis Lafazanis, a minister for a SYRIZA Radical Left government that ruled from 2015-19 hasn’t forgotten the humiliation Germany heaped on Greece when it was seeking bailouts depending on Germany’s banks and government.
