Mitsotakis paid the price for the same-sex bill and his submissiveness to Turkey and Skopje. About 58% of the voters abstained!!

By Nick Stamatakis

You can see the official results by linking here to the website of the Greek Interior Ministry.  The distinguishing factor of these elections is the percentage of abstention from the elections: About 58% of the voters did not go to the polls – and this is a historical first for Greece!! Usually, Greek voters show a higher percentage of participation in elections than other Europeans, but not this time.  This time, the Greeks showed absolute disgust to their political leaders, collectively the most corrupt politicians in Europe!!

Secondly, the most important result of the EU parliament elections was that Mitsotakis’s ND party lost about 1 million votes compared to last year’s Greek Parliament elections, and about 750,000 voted compared to the results of the 2019 EU parliament elections!! It was an unqualified rejection of the policies of Kyriakos Mitsotakis! Thankfully, he acknowledged this failure, and he canceled a foreign trip to stay in Greece and made statements to the media. The mistake was all his own: He had set the bar too high, as just weeks before the elections, he announced that he expected his party to gather over 33% of the vote!

However, the true reasons for Mitsotaki’s failures were his policies on most issues, particularly the introduction of the same-sex bill.  Such legislation is usually introduced by left-wing parties and not by a supposedly center-right political party, such as New Democracy.  The voters felt that Mitsotakis abandoned the party’s ideology to veer sharply towards the globalist left.  But he also abandoned the patriotic nature of the ND party.  During the last five years, he promised the voters that he would reject the Prespes Agreement, and he did the exact opposite, obeying demands across the Atlantic.  Additionally, he found myriad ways to accommodate Turkey’s territorial expansion and other claims, while there was no reason to do so.

The result of the voters’ sharp rejection of ND was the rise of several right-wing patriotic parties, first among them “Elliniki Lysi” led by Kyriakos Velopoulos, which suddenly gathered about 9.5% of the vote and had become de facto the main opposition party.  If Mr.Velopoulos managed to find ways of cooperation with NIKI (4.3%) and “Foni Logikis” (3%) and the other smaller political parties of the right, then the future belongs to them.  All these right-wing parties put together gathered over 20% of the vote!!

The parties of the Left (SYRIZA and PASOK mainly) lost or are perceived as having lost ground and will spend time in internal struggles in the coming months. The general political trends do not favor them at all.

I will close this short note here with a wish: Let these EU elections be the beginning of a globalist defeat and for peace in Ukraine, Gaza, and beyond!…

Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis admitted yesterday that the ruling Conservative party fell short of its goal in the recent European elections, attributing the outcome to record abstention and protest votes.

“I will not hide the truth. Our party did not reach the goal we had set. Nor am I interested in arguments such as that the difference with the second party is the biggest in the history of the European elections,” Mitsotakis stated in a recorded message on Sunday night. He noted that the electorate might have approached this election differently, knowing it wasn’t for electing a government.

Mitsotakis acknowledged voter dissatisfaction, particularly concerning inflation. “I hear their voice and their demand and I hear it loud. ‘We trust you, but try harder.’ And that’s what we’re going to do,” he added.

Despite the setback, Mitsotakis emphasised that New Democracy remains the dominant party in Greece, successfully avoiding the surge in far-right parties seen elsewhere in Europe. He pledged to focus on everyday issues affecting Greeks and declared, “These elections are the starting point of a new path towards 2027.”
