  • [01] PM demands Dep. Education Minister Stylios' resignation

  • [01] PM demands Dep. Education Minister Stylios' resignation

    ANA-MPA -- Prime Minister Antonis Samaras on Thursday asked for the resignation of Deputy Education Minister Giorgos Stylios as soon as he was informed of the latter's statements in Parliament earlier in the day.

    Stylios had a heated confrontation with communist KKE party MP Liana Kanelli, when during a discussion of a current question submitted by Kanelli he referred to detained Golden Dawn deputy Ilias Kassidiaris, who in 2012 attacked the KKE MP and SYRIZA's Rena Dourou, currently Attica governor, in a live morning show on private ANT1 TV.

    "You want to turn me into Kassidiaris," Stylios told Kanelli. "However, Stylios will not be turned into Kassidiaris."

    Fortunately, the government this time did what it had to do, Kanelli said commenting on Samaras' decision to call for Stylios' resignation.

    Before the premier's announcement, Stylios had apologized to Kanelli. "Tensions can lead to verbal exaggerations. Obviously I did not want to insult Ms Kanelli and I apologize to her. The reference to Kassidiaris' name and his behavior, which I condemn, was a mistake," he said.

    Main opposition SYRIZA party condemned Stylios' attack against Kanelli.

    "The fact that government officials refer to Golden Dawn's violence is a huge insult to Democracy," the party said in a statement before Samaras called for Stylios' resignation. It added that this kind of behavior could not be tolerated and no ‘apology' could excuse it.
