Popular Orthodox Alarm (LAOS) denounced a disorder during the parliamentary procedure for the revision of constitution. As parliamentary member Thanasis Plevris said, the ballot paper of minister of tourism Mr. Aris Spyliotopoulos was signed by him and was delivered to Mr. Agorastos but then for unknown reasons the paper had the signature of the other voting collector, Ioannis Bougas who is also a New Democracy parliamentary member.
Mr. Spyliotopoulos reacted strongly and said that this was a procedural issue and not a disorder in his voting paper. Parliamentary Member, Mr. Ath. Plevris and ND Press representative D. Oikonomou presented today the results of the voting procedure in a press conference.
A video of the voting procedure was presented showing Mr. Spyliotopoulos voting paper being firstly delivered and signed by parliamentary member Mr. Ath. Plevris -the voting collector- and finally being handed out to New Democracy parliamentary member Mr. Agorastos.
Mr. Spyliotopoulos answered that he would be the first one who would have denounced any corruption in voting, supporting that this was only a procedural issue.
