Law must have the final word

How is it possible that in a democratic country, where a government bill is approved by the majority of its elected Parliament, a number of institutional officials brazenly announce that the law will not be implemented after all?

Exactly where do these left-wing party members and university rectors derive the kind of legitimacy that gives them the right to decide which laws should be implemented and which should not?

Greek democracy and its constitutional laws apply to the whole of the country and this is a fact that ought to be respected by all Greek citizens, irrespective of their position or political stance.

Anyone who adopts this kind of extremist position is going directly against constitutional order and the law, and should not be allowed to achieve their goals.

The vast majority of Greek Parliament, which represents the broader middle-class, has a duty to safeguard the constitution and to make sure that the law it has voted through is put into effect.
