Unbelievably, it appears it is finally happening: with all other options expired, Greece is tasking the Golden Dawn with forming the new government, following the resignation of Alexis Tsipras.
This is breaking news, and the Russian-owned Sputnik was the first to report it.
The third party to be granted a mandate to form a new Greek government will be the far-right Golden Dawn, MP from the New Democracy Party, Makis Voridis, told Sputnik on Friday.
“The third party to receive a proposal to create a government will be the Golden Dawn,” Voridis who is a former Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Networks, said.
“I do not think that New Democracy will manage to create a new government, it will not manage to form a parliamentarian majority,” Voridis, who is a former Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Networks, said.
Earlier on Friday, Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos granted the leader of Greece’s official opposition and head of the center-right New Democracy party Vangelis Meimarakis a mandate to form a new government.
Under the Greek Constitution, Meimarakis has three days to determine if his party can create a viable government before a caretaker regime is put in place.
New Europe also has an article on this. It will break in the big media in the next few hours.
This is a virtually identical situation to what happened in Weimar Germany, when all options had been exhausted and they were like “well, what about that crazy guy we threw in prison a while back? Let’s just give it to him.”
Is it really happening?
It may very well be.
