The leader of the Independent Greeks, Panos Kammenos , in his column on Sunday’s edition of the newspaper “Dimokratia”, says that a referendum will have to be held in Greece, on the “new name of the northern neighbor”.

“The Greek people will have to decide this, without precedent in the history of mankind, the deviation of culture and the culture of another people,” Kammenos writes, explaining that any inclusion of the term Macedonia in the name would mean a decline in Greek culture and history.

The coalition partner in the Greek government also pointed out that the government is now talking about a complex name with a geographical determinant, but in Tsipras’s pre-election program, nowhere is it mentioned that the compound name would include the term Macedonia.
