The current regime makes moves aimed at keeping itself in power.
Previously PASOK and ND appointed everyone and everything, creating the dysfunctional state we are experiencing today. It seems SYRIZA keeps going in this direction to give illegal immigrants voting rights in order to reduce the influence of the Greeks in the election results and create a distortion of the popular will.
Speaking on party radio for SYRIZA, the Minister for Immigration Policy, Tasia Christodoulopoulou said about the issue:
“SYRIZA is committed to provide the Greek citizenship to all children born and raised in Greece, the so-called second generation immigrants”.
While under Greek constitutional law this is completely illegal(citizenship can only be obtained by Greek descent or strict naturalization after 10 years of legal residence), it won’t stop the corrupt regimes ruling Greece from trying to implement it, knowing that most Greeks are completely ignorant of what laws are in the Greek constitution.
Where the once “far-right” patriot Kammenos will stand on this issue is an interesting question. Samaras the “conservative” pushed to give every illegal immigrant residence permits now and in the future under their “Anti-Racist” bill. This simply takes it one step further.
