ND voters welcome Mitsotakis with a “Messiah” fiesta (video)

It could have been a joke, but it’s not. With laurels, cheers and carnation banners, voters of New Democracy in Patras, prepared a special “Messiah” welcome fiesta for Kyriakos Mitsotakis, something we have never seen again after Jesus arrived in Jerusalem on a donkey and was welcomed by a cheering crowd.

Voters paved the road with laurels even though it was clear the former prime minister, Messiah the Second, would not arrive on the back of a donkey.

At the same time, a group of his supporters marched with a carnations-decorated banner reading “Kyriako Achaia is with you.”

Based on the video below, it’s not clear if they also chanted “hosanna!” or “hallelujah!”

Note that “Messiah” was a description used by certain opinion makers in Greece for Kyriako Mitsotakis who apparently came close to his target in Patras.

On social media, lots of Greeks mocked the ‘messiah-fiesta’ in Patras and some even posted characteristic photo-shopped pictures.

Some were sure that after the Patras branch, Mitsotakis would move up on a hilol to turn water into wine.

According to local media that revealed the modern Messiah’s welcome, Patras was the first stop of today’s Mitsotakis’ pre-elections tour.

Speaking to the crowd, he said among others that he wants “Patras to be the protagonist of development in the next 4 years.” He added “the citizens told us run faster to make the big changes that our country needs.”
