The man at the heart of al­le­ga­tions that he tried to bribe an In­de­pen­dent Greeks MP yes­ter­day de­nied any con­nec­tion with New Democ­racy. Gior­gos Souk­ouras has been ac­cused by law­maker Stavroula Xouli­dou of call­ing her and con­tact­ing her via Face­book to tempt her to vote for the gov­ern­ment’s pres­i­den­tial can­di­date in Fe­bru­ary in re­turn for up to 3 mil­lion euros. “New Democ­racy has noth­ing to do with this and what­ever I told Mrs Xouli­dou was my per­sonal opin­ion,” said Souk­ouras. The law­maker gave a de­po­si­tion to a pros­e­cu­tor on Thurs­day and the al­le­ga­tions will be in­ves­ti­gated.
