The mishap of the PASOK-KINAL MP caused a stir storm reactions, with New Democracy to issues a relevant announcement in which he asks Nikos Androulakis to take a clear position.

“The Muslim PASOK member of parliament in Xanthi, Burhan Baran, in his public post, declares himself a member of the “Advisory Committee of the Turkish Minority of Western Thrace” (BTTA Danışma Kurulu), announces the pseudo-muftis candidates and invites Greek Muslims to come to the “elections” in 9/9. In addition, he boldly declares that he will stand by the side of whoever is elected,” the announcement states and adds:

It is a shame that a Greek MP actually calls the minority “Turkish” and to motivate Muslim citizens to participate in the elections for the new pseudo-mufti of Xanthi, i.e. the one not recognized by the state».

“The president of PASOK should take a stand: Why is he detaining a member of parliament who recognizes the minority as “Turkish”? Do PASOK respect Greek legislation or not? Do they respect or not the legal procedure for electing a mufti, which the Parliament voted on a few weeks ago?“, emphasizes the announcement of New Democracy.
