“On the elections on May 26th, we will state that we want to turn the page by writing the preface of a new era for our country,” said Kyriakos Mitsotakis at Zappeion Megaron during the official launch of Manfred Weber’s presidential campaign for the presidency of the European Commission.

The ND president has launched a fierce personal assault against the Prime Minister, stressing that he “lies not only regarding Greek issues but also European ones” as he tries to “portray Manfred as a supposedly rival of Greece because he simply opposed SYRIZA’s adventurism.”

Manfred Weber referred in detail to what happened during the Juncker and Barroso chairmanships and said that the EPP is united on all fronts.

“In 2019 we will fight against nationalists wanting to destroy Europe’s vision,” he added, pointing out that the EPP program is based on the demands and ideas of European citizens.
