Kammenos: ANEL Will Leave Greek Coalition Government Over Macedonia Name Deal

Panos Kammenos commented on Sunday that the name deal granting FYROM permission to call itself “North Macedonia” is the “last straw” for his party.

Kammenos stated that thus far, “We cooperated to save the country,” speaking of the ANEL party’s alliance with the Greek government. However, he stressed that ANEL’s MPs will walk out of Parliament if the name deal is presented for ratification, and that his party will leave the coalition if the leftist ruling SYRIZA government presents the agreement.

“ANEL has been clear on its position; we will not accept the term ‘Macedonia,’” Kammenos said. “We have never cooperated with those who want to steal our history.”
