Prominent New Democracy MP and party vice-president Adonis Georgiadis on Friday posted a statement on Facebook to apologize to the Jewish people for his intolerance towards them in the past and for his antisemitic views.

"In the past I had shared and tolerated the opinions of people that showed disrespect toward my Jewish fellow citizens and for this reason I feel the need to apologize to the Jewish Community," Georgiadis wrote on the occasion of Holocaust Memorial day.

As a member of the far-right Popular Orthodox Rally party, prior to his presence in ND, Georgiadis was widely accused anti-Semitism.
