Giorgos Karatzaferis, leader of the far-right party LAOS is currently meeting President Karolos Papoulias. Karatzeferis is expected to support the new Greek government and he doesn’t exlcude the possibility to join it as the ‘third’ coalition partner. Then what kind of a ‘national unity or salvation gov’t’ can be established if it consists of only two political parties out of eight?
However the first objections to participation of Karatzaferis came from the …German Jews.
The Central Council of Jews has expressed outrage over Greece’s Prime Minister George Papandreou negotiating with Karatzaferis over a government of national unity, according to German BILD newspaper. The chairman of the Central Council, Dieter Graumann, told populist BILD: “A proven anti-Semite should not be a member of the Greek government with which the German government would then have to negotiate on equal terms, for example on new billion-aid package. I hope that all parties are wise enough to avoid such a moral and political catastrophe. ”
