ND leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis adamant his party will not ratify Prespes Agreement


New Democracy leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis said the Prespes Agreement was "shameful" for the country and Greek people and repeated that his party would not ratify it.

"New Democracy is reiterating that it is not going to ratify the agreement," Mitsotakis said on Sunday from Kastoria, which celebrated its 106th anniversary since its liberation from the Ottoman occupation and its incorporation into Greece.

He also added that Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and junior coalition government partner Panos Kammenos signed an agreement that constitutes a concession of the Macedonian language and the Macedonian ethnicity.

“Today we are in Kastoria to pay tribute to those who gave their lives to keep Macedonia free."

The leader of New Democracy also said that for a long time "I have sounded alarm over the prolonged pre-election period that the country is going through and the pre-election promises of the Prime Minister."
