Far-right party’s legal maneuver fails

A move by the far-right National Party-Greeks to remove three members of the Supreme Court’s A1 Civil Section considering its eligibility to contest the May 21 election has been unanimously rejected.

National Party-Greeks was founded in 2020 by convicted criminal Ilias Kasidiaris, a former MP with the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party from 2012 to 2019.

Kasidiaris is serving a 13-year sentence as a directing member of a criminal organization (Golden Dawn).

The Supreme Court will decide on the parties’ eligibility on Tuesday. A total of 50 formations have filed to contest the election.
