The disgraced former general secretary Panagiotis Baltakos was invited to speak to the Parapolitika FM radio station, where he hinted towards the creation of a new party in order to attract Golden Dawn voters.
Baltakos stated that “it is not a shame to say we are right wing. There are people and voters of the right of New Demcoracy. They are in Golden Dawn and we must extract them”. The former general secretary denied having any ambition of creating his own party, but did not rule out the idea of such a body.
Later on in the interview the former general secretary revealed that he is not alone and that other New Democracy members have also considered the benefits of such a body.
Baltakos did not respond when he asked to comment on the rumored name change of New Democracy and the possibility of proposing former PM Kostas Karamanlis to run for President of Democracy.
