After the official statements of Nikos Michaloliakos, the political developments are moving rapidly and the elections remain a possibility.
The leader of the Golden Dawn stressed that they will exhaust all legal means, and he didn’t exclude, nor confirm the collective resignation of the Golden Dawn’s MPs, something that will lead to elections in the 15 regions that have elected a representative of Golden Dawn. In addition, he stressed that his party is displeased with those who “sell out” Greece and that his party is not a criminal organization.
He also stated that: “The rise of Golden Dawn displeased those who plunder the sweat of people. Golden Dawn will by all means defend its political entity and honor. The criminals are those who made the country go bankrupt. In the framework of our legal and institutional rights, we will exhaust all means to defend our political honor.”
He concluded: “If the country enters into a destabilization circle, Golden Dawn won’t be liable. The Golden Dawn party defends itself.”
“If they do it, SYRIZA will turn the elections into a double referendum against Nazism and the memorandum into a step for the national elections. This is a criminal organization,” he said for Golden Dawn, adding: ” this is a political issue and it doesn’t only concern the justice and the police.”
He also accused the government of using Golden Dawn as a curtain in order to hide the memorandum and the new measures.
