Independent Greeks committee to discuss errant MP next Tuesday

The ethics committee of the right-wing anti-bailout party Independent Greeks is to convene next Tuesday to discuss the case of outspoken lawmaker Rachil Makri after she made a series of disparaging comments about colleagues on her Facebook page.

Independent Greeks leader Panos Kammenos deferred any decision on Makri’s future to the committee.

Makri, who has been at loggerheads with Kammenos for months and nearly quit the party at the end of last year, hinted last week that she might continue as an independent MP, declaring that she would “keep trying to express my political beliefs and opinions publicly.”
