Mitsotakis presents main points of ND’s proposal on revision of Constitution

New Democracy (ND) leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Monday presented his party’s proposal for the revision of the Constitution to his parliamentary group, adding that ND will participate in the process and will argue on every article but will not consent to give SYRIZA a free hand.

ND’s proposal calls for a fixed election cycle and complete disengagement of the general elections from the election of the President of Republic. It also provides for the modernisation of the state with increased guarantees for fighting bureaucracy, increasing the powers and responsibilities of local authorities while providing them with more autonomous funding, protecting justice’s independence, ensuring a stable tax and investment environment, increasing the autonomy of public universities while allowing the establishment of private universities and finally, establishing real evaluation and meritocracy at all levels of public administration.
