Constitutionalists express the opinion that chaos from repeated resignations of GD MP's causing repeated by-elections can be countenanced by passing a law which prohibits by-elections if said resignations are intending to cause chaos.

    Third edit: Latest developments and sources, thanks to /u/InfamousBrad. Since a lot people are asking, i should add that, while the investigation is ongoing it is secret and, therefore, some of the news might not be trustworthy. If you're interested in being properly informed, you should wait until an official statement is made.

    One can try to scream all "freedom of speech" and so on when it comes to this... but the Golden Dawn are a bunch of half-crazed white supremacist Nazi sympathizers. This kind of evil needs to be dealt with early and at the core. Good job, Greece.
