The crucial decision
The crucial decision for the electoral fate of the Kasidiaris party, but also of the EAN party, will be taken on next Tuesday by the judges of the A1 Department of the Supreme Court, in application of the recent legislative regulations.
For the party of Ilias Kasidiaris, estimates are that it will not pass the legality check that will be made by the supreme court, as the convicted former member of the FSA himself participates in it, which is expressly prohibited by law.
But as far as the “EAN” party of Anastasios Kanellopoulos is concerned, which finally chose an autonomous descent, while he had initially declared that he would lead the Kasidiaris party, the assessments of his electoral fortune are contradictory.
If finally the honorary deputy prosecutor of the Supreme Court files a file without any executive of the AXA, it is unlikely, as judicial sources report, that it can be cut by the Supreme Court.
However, opinions are also expressed that the Supreme Court may ultimately be led to a decision to ban the participation of this political formation as well, if there are evidences that in fact link the “EAN” with the political pursuits of the imprisoned Kasidiaris.
To this end, judicial sources stated that the Supreme Court will proceed in strict compliance with the current legislation and will check the substance of the relations between the political formations “EAN” and “Greeks”, as well as the relations between Kanellopoulos and Kasidiaris.
