Mitsotakis: Rule of law and separation of powers foundations of democracy

The rule of law and the separation of powers are fundamental building blocks of a democratic society, New Democarcy leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Monday, during a meeting with the Association of Judges and Prosecutors.

“Justice is the last refuge for Greek citizens, especially the weakest ones,” the main opposition leader added, and criticized the government for using judicial institutions to serve its own political purposes, thus undermining the quality of democracy.
