Choos­ing can­di­dates

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

New Democ­racy re­ally should make a point of en­sur­ing that it is rep­re­sented in the up­com­ing lo­cal govern­ment elec­tions by can­di­dates who sig­nal a drive for re­newal in the con­ser­va­tive party. Party leader Kyr­i­akos Mit­so­takis was elected on the prom­ise that he would in­tro­duce new poli­cies and new faces to the decades-old party, while mod­ern­iz­ing it and ad­dress­ing the con­cerns of its voter base. He has suc­ceeded in keep­ing this prom­ise when it comes to the party’s po­si­tion in sev­eral im­por­tant ar­eas. But like it or not, the suc­cess of any po­lit­i­cal en­deavor re­lies very heav­ily on the choice of can­di­dates and peo­ple to carry it through.
