Leader of Greece’s main opposition party New Democracy (ND), Kyriakos Mitsotakis accused the Greek government of directly circumventing the power of the Judicial system. In a statement on occasion of the 43rd anniversary of the restoration of the Republic, Mr. Mitsotakis said: “The separation of powers, a cornerstone of the rule of law, is directly circumvented by a government that is attempting to fully manipulate and subjugate Justice. A government that considers Justice as an insitutional obstacle” Mr. Mistotakis continued by sending a clear message to anyone scheming to shake the democratic edifice: “The democratic institutions will stand. Society will not be divided.”
