Mitsotakis accuses government of ‘infuriating indifference’ toward Rouvikonas
The government is “infuriatingly indifferent” to the disturbances caused by the anti-establishment group “Rouvikonas”, main opposition New Democracy President Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Thursday. He noted that the group could not be allowed to embarrass the country every week by taking the law into its own hands.
“There is no democracy without implementing the law and there is no prosperity without a sense of safety. Security will return throughout Greece, including northern Greece and Thessaloniki,” he said.
Mitsotakis made the comments in response to a Rouvikonas attack targeting the Federation of Industries of Northern Greece in Thessaloniki on Thursday, noting that the group’s next step might well be to demand its own pavilion at the Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF), judging by the tolerant attitude of the government and the new leaders of the citizen protection ministry. He was talking to academics and members of the scientific community ahead of the 83rd TIF.
During the meeting, he also promised that ND will not make pledges that it cannot carry out, respecting the ‘pact of truth’ with Greek citizens.
