Athens, April 4, 2014
Aris Spiliotopoulos, an Athens mayoral candidate, has declared that if he is elected mayor, he will then hold a referendum at which the citizens must clearly express their opinion concerning the construction of a mosque in Athens, voting “for” or “against”.
“Athens citizens are those who will decide, and the holding of the referendum is the most democratic path which we must follow,” commented a metropolitan from Attica, who wished to remain anonymous, reports Romfea.
“Ask the city-dwellers,” the metropolitan continued, “whether the taking of such a poll is even discussed among the people. Everybody is definitely against any idea of building of a mosque in Athens”.
