The main opposition party New Democracy has essentially rejected the Constitutional review proposals presented by the Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Monday, announcing that it will not participate in the ‘superficial’ and ‘pointless’ procedures.

On the contrary, New Democracy claims that if the Prime Minister truly wants a new Constitution for Greece, he should have agreed with the proposal of Kyriakos Mitsotakis to agree on the greatest possible number of provisions to review, so that the people may decide in the next elections on the content of changes necessary.

New Democracy spokesperson Giorgos Koumoutsakos further noted that the Constitution review is by default a process that requires consensus and accused the Prime Minister of turning it into a “polarizing and divisive tool”. The main opposition party however has yet to present proposals of its own, despite rumors that the conservative party was planning to present by mid July.

Given that the PM’s proposals are similar to those presented by current President Prokopis Pavlopoulos and former ND president Evangelos Meimarakis, it appears that the party’s current leadership may to support the election of the President from the people, despite its reservations.
