Kara­man­lis seen keep­ing dis­tance from An­tonaros

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Fig­ures close to former pre­mier Costas Kara­man­lis have dis­tanced them­selves from con­tro­ver­sial com­ments by ex-gov­ern­ment spokesman Evan­ge­los An­tonaros, halt­ing talk of dis­putes within New Democ­racy.

Sources close to Kara­man­lis sug­gested Antono­ras was ex­press­ing a per­sonal view when he at­tacked con­ser­va­tive party vice pres­i­dent Ado­nis Ge­or­giadis via so­cial me­dia. The com­ments led to ND leader Kyr­i­akos Mit­so­takis oust­ing him from the party.

Kathimerini un­der­stands ND MP Kostas Achil­leas Kara­man­lis, a cousin of the former prime min­is­ter, is due to pub­licly con­firm that An­tonaros’s com­ments do not re­flect the ex-Greek leader’s views.
