Mitsotakis’s first statement as New Democracy leader

“Voters gave a clear mandate to proceed to party’s renewal” he said

In his brief first statement as new president of the main opposition party New Democracy Kyriakos Mitsotakis said that today is a great and historic day for New Democracy.

As he explained, voters gave a clear mandate to proceed to party’s renewal, while the party continues to be united. “Together we move forward leaving behind what divides us,” he said.

He also called Vangelis Meimarakis a friend and congratulated him for the fight he gave and noted that he would need him next to him as a valuable partner.

Mr. Mitsotakis also referred to the other two candidates of the first round of elections, Apostolos Tzitzikostas and Adonis Georgiadis, stating that “We will all move forward, together, with Apostolos Tzitzikosta and Adonis Georgiadis, with the 400,000 members of the party”.
