Samaras displeased after former Parliament’s President Statements

 

By Christos T. Panagopoulos

Greek Prime Minister, Antonis Samaras, is thinking about the possibility of ousting former President of the Hellenic Partliament, Vyronas Polydoras, after a statement the latter has made on Monday, noting that the New Democracy party should consider a possible co-operation with the right-wing extremist party, Golden Dawn.

The New Democracy head office declared Mr. Polydoras’s sayings as “very weird” and cleared that “it is obvious that the New Democracy would never co-operate with extremist forces and especially the neo-Nazis”.

As of Mr. Polydoras, these reactions obliged him to make a U-turn. Hours after his first statement, while talking with journalists he commented in a satirical mood: “Whoever finds such a statement from my part, will win a gold watch”. But he insisted that his party should try to build bridges with other political formations in order to confront all the pressure put by the Troika.
