Main opposition New Democracy announced on Tuesday that is boycotting state broadcaster ERT, preventing its officials and members of parliament from appearing on the television station.

According to an announcement issued by the party, it made its decision after a journalist at ERT likened the leader of the main opposition party with Italian fascist dictator Mussolini.

New Democracy has sent a letter to the management of ERT accusing the broadcaster of having “ridiculed public television with vulgar propaganda.”

In a statement, ERT said it would continue to cover New Democracy activities, but added that it was not prepared to “pre-emptively censor” its commentators.
