The Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected in a 9-1 vote the application of the party ‘National Party-Hellenes’ to run in the May 21 national elections.

Hellenes was founded by Ilias Kasidiaris, who is serving a jail sentence for his high-level participation in the neo-Nazi criminal organization Golden Dawn (Chryssi Avgi).

In a statement to reporters after the decision was issued, Kasidiaris said that “the democratic state was decisively overthrown tonight, depriving half a million Greeks of their supreme right to vote for the party of their choice.”

The ‘National Party-Hellenes’, he continued, “was illegally targeted because it is the most honest and transparent party in the domestic political scene. We did expect this unprecedented aberration and are fully prepared for the next day.”

Kasidiaris said his official announcement will follow on Wednesday evening.

In a statement, his lawyer Vasso Pantazi said, “Ilias Kasidiaris will not support any other party. He will decide on his further legal actions on Wednesday.”
