The Greek judiciary did not allow the party founded by Ilias Kasidiaris, a former member of the Golden Dawn party, to enter the general elections scheduled for May 21.
According to the news of the Greek state agency AMNA, the Greek Supreme Court (Arios Pagos) has decided that the Greek Nationalist Party, which was founded by former MP Kasidiaris, cannot participate in the general elections scheduled for May 21.
Kasidiaris’ lawyer, Vasu Pantazi, stated that after the Supreme Court’s decision, Kasidiaris will not support any political formation.
On the other hand, the Supreme Court granted permission to Anastasios Kanellopoulos, who briefly took over the leadership of the Greek Nationalist Party in April, and then decided later in the same month to enter the elections with the EAN party he founded in 2022 and which had been dormant for a while.
The Golden Dawn criminal organization is recognized
The far-right Golden Dawn party, for which Kasidiaris was a member of Parliament for a period, was recognized as a “criminal organization” by a Greek court in October 2020; Kasidiaris was also found guilty of founding a criminal organization and belonging to a criminal organization.
The candidates for the elections have been announced
The Supreme Court accepted 36 out of 50 applications to participate in the general elections on May 21. Accordingly, 27 political parties, 8 coalitions and 1 independent candidate will be able to participate in the elections.
