|ANNOUNCEMENT on LAOS MPs JOINING the ND PARTY|
|Friday, 17 February 2012 14:59|
The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece expresses the Greek Jewry’s concern and surprise for the fact that two MPs, M. Voridis and A. Georgiadis, recently expelled from the LAOS party, have joined the party of “New Democracy” (ND). In the past these MPs have expressed or associated themselves with insulting anti-Jewish views.
We hope that the leadership of “New Democracy”, which is a leading Greek party, will take all necessary measures so that such views remain at the margins of the Greek society, and will safeguard the equality of all citizens regardless of race or religion, as provided for by the Constitution.
The Greek Jewry also believes that the same policy against racism and anti-Semitism, as endorsed by all democratic Greek and European parties, will continue.
