New Democracy interim leader Meimarakis resigns

Main opposition paty New Democracy (ND) interim leader Evangelos Meimarakis submitted his resignation on Monday and lashed out against the other candidates for their recent stance.

Meimarakis announced that he would call on the secretary of ND parliamentary group Yiannis Plakiotakis and ask him to start immediately the procedure to appoint a new interim leader. Moreover, he called on the other candidates to resign from their posts. Adonis Georgiadis accepted the call and already resigned from party parliamentary spokesman as well as Kyriakos Mitsotakis while Apostolos Tzitzikostas cleared out that he will not step down from his position as local governor.
