Quick resigns as parliamentary spokesman for Independent Greeks

Former TV presenter Terence Quick has resigned as parliamentary spokesman for the Independent Greeks.

In a letter to Panos Kammenos, the leader of the nationalist party, Quick said that he would remain as a lawmaker. He did not cite specific reasons for his decision.

Quick, who has been involved in Greek television since the 1970s, joined the party in early 2012, when Kammenos founded the right-wing movement after being ousted from New Democracy.

He was voted to Parliament after being placed first on Independent Greeks’ state list.

Seven high profile members left the party, which has 18 MPs, in December due to complaints about Kammenos’s leadership.
