  • [01] Markoyiannakis expelled from ND Parliamentary group

  • [01] Markoyiannakis expelled from ND Parliamentary group

    (ANA-MPA) -- Main opposition New Democracy (ND) party leader Antonis Samaras on Wednesday expelled Hania-district deputy and former minister Christos Markoyiannnakis from ND's Parliamentary group.

    Samaras, in a letter addressed to Parliament President Filippos Petsalnikos, announced the Cretan MP's ouster from the ND Parliamentary group.

    Additionally, according to reports, Samaras will refer Markoyiannakis to the party's ethics committee on the issue of the latter's complete expulsion from the party.

    The reason for the censure were statements by Markoyiannakis several days ago, in which he left open the possibility of running an independent in the Crete regional director election (a new post), in opposition to ND's apparent preference for Yiannis Plakiotakis. Markoyiannakis also criticised Plakiotakis.
