New Democracy chief Kyriakos Mitsotakis would be the most suitable political leader for the position of prime minister, Panayiotis Pikrammenos, a retired judge who led a caretaker government in 2012, said in comments published Wednesday.

“Whether we like it or not, Kyriakos is currently the only person who can lead the effort to save the country,” Pikrammenos told Bloomberg.

“When you are a leader, you don’t just refurbish the old house. You blow everything up and then you either win or lose the game,” Pikrammenos said.

“I am confident that Kyriakos will do as much, when the time comes,” he said.

The conservatives are ahead in opinion polls by as much as eight percentage points.
