Incumbent Athens mayor chides rival over remarks
Athens Mayor Giorgos Kaminis on Friday chided Aris Spiliotopoulos, his New Democracy rival in Mays local elections, after the deputy likened Athens to Kabul in the wake of Thursdays bomb explosion outside the Bank of Greece.
He is undermining the citys effort to improve in terms of tourism, Kaminis said on Skai Radio.
The incumbent mayor also criticized his rival for referring to protesters as being half-crazy.
Kaminis said he was opposed to the city center being shut by small demonstrations but added that protesters should be treated with respect.
