Government spokesperson Yiannis Economou again highlighted the importance of the elections on May 21 in an interview with the radio station Parapolitika 90.1 FM on Tuesday, stressing that these elections using a system of simple proportional representation will largely determine what happens next in the future of the country.

“These elections will determine, through what the Greek people decide and select, which political proposal and what policy direction will follow, which prime minister and which party will govern,” Economou said.

He stressed the ruling New Democracy party was seeking a clear mandate, which in an environment of enhanced proportional representation will ensure a stable government. “In spite of the various questions and irregularities that simple proportional representation generates, the result of the first election, whatever that is, will inevitably determine how things will go over the next period,” he added.

According to Economou, the May 21 elections were currently the sole focus and “the only clear governance proposal that currently exists ….is the proposal of [Prime Minister] Kyriakos Mitsotakis for a clear, strong, single-party parliamentary majority that does not, of course, rule out the incorporation of people, ideas and trends that did not belong exclusively to ND.”

The spokesperson also referred to the prime minister’s visit to Corfu on Wednesday and his plans to tour Greece in the days leading up to the elections, while indicating that Mitsotakis will not shy away from a televised debate with his political opponents and would not object “to a discussion that is not a series of parallel monologues, that will be defined, with terms, interactive, where each can address the other…a discussion based on real facts, where one is not able to say what they like without any rebuttal.”

Regarding the accusations against the MEP Alexis Georgoulis, he noted that the case was now in the hands of justice, which must reach its conclusions, and that there would be not attempt to “instrumentalise” the affair.
