The vice-president of the Supreme Court and president of the court’s Α1 Section, Christos Tzanerikos, announced on Monday that he has resigned from the judiciary.

The vice-president of the Supreme Court, who was going to preside over the A1 Section of the courts that will judge the legality of participation in the elections of all parties – including the party founded by convicted former Golden Dawn MP Ilias Kasidiaris – resigned after the reactions caused by his public opposition on Sunday of the latest government amendment that regulates the functioning of the A1 section.

The justice’s statements concerned an amendment that Interior Minister Makis Voridis submitted some days ago, which was complementary to earlier legislation seeking to prevent the re-entry of neo-Nazis in the Greek parliament.

Judge Christos Tzanerikos, Supreme Court vice-president and president of the court’s Section A1 – which will rule on whether an incarcerated neo-Nazi can run for Parliament from jail – called the amendment “an unprecedented […] and direct intervention in the operation of the Supreme Court.” In a statement, he also said that the amendment’s “ostensible reasoning” of supporting and defending any Supreme Court decision so it would not be cast in doubt expresses “the distrust and lack of confidence in my person on behalf of the government, which made the related legislative initiative.”
