Failos Kradiniotis Ex-aide to former PM Antonis Samaras, forms far-right party
Failos Kranidiotis, a lawyer and former aide to ex-prime minister Antonis Samaras, launched a political party called New Right Friday, aimed at drawing voters from the hard right of the political spectrum.
Kranidiotis launched the new party a few weeks after he was ousted from conservative New Democracy by leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis over controversial online comments he posted in response to a diplomatic faux pas by Migration Minister Yiannis Mouzalas.
New Right is the second hard-right party to be launched in the past few weeks, following the announcement of National Unity, formed by former nationalist LAOS chief Giorgos Karatzaferis and ex-Samaras cabinet secretary Panayiotis Baltakos.
According to the politic strategy lanced by Kradiniotis yesterday, the "New Right Party" has in program Northern Epirus and Pontus issues, as priority of the National Issue of Greece.
