SYRIZA for ND shadow cabinet: Same old political staff of the Samaras era

Ruling coalition leader SYRIZA on Friday dismissed the “shadow cabinet” unveiled by main opposition New Democracy’s leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis as a “recycling” of familiar figures from the era of his predecessor, former prime minister Antonis Samaras.

“Mr. Mitsotakis, however much he presents himself as a reformer and ‘untarnished’ will always remain in the shadow of Mr. Samaras,” a SYRIZA announcement said. Apart from the same old political staff of the Samaras era, Mitsotakis had also “upgraded” well-known far-rightists such as Makis Voridis and ND’s Vice-President Adonis Georgiadis for a composition that could not convince anybody, it added.
