Barroso Expresses Concern Over Election of Golden Dawn in Greece

by -

The President of the European Commission Jose Manuel Barroso expressed his concerns during a press conference today over the election of the far-right Golden Dawn party in the May 6 elections in Greece, underlining that the EU must be particularly “vigilant.”

Asked to comment if parties like Greece’s Golden Dawn should be banned in Europe, Barroso questioned the neo-Nazi label of the Greek party by noting that “we have to define what a neo-Nazi party is. This can only be done at a national level.”

Barroso warned that the EU Commission “will not hesitate to use all mechanisms available to act against those who insult community law and the fundamental human rights charter.”
