Kyriakos Mitsotakis is a member of the center-right political party Nea Demokratia (New Democracy), which he also leads. New Democracy’s platform is based on free-market economics, small government, and personal responsibility principles. The party’s ideology is centered around conservatism, populism, and classical liberalism. It is considered one of Greece’s two main political parties, alongside the left-wing party SYRIZA.
Mitsotakis has been a vocal advocate for cutting taxes, privatizations, and other measures to boost foreign investment in the country. Kyriakos Mitsotakis’ government has implemented strict measures on immigration by extending an anti-migrant steel fence, increasing patrols, and accelerating asylum processing to decrease the number of migrants entering Greece. Despite his advocacy for EU support and coordination, the government has faced criticisms for human rights violations along the border with Turkey. Mitsotakis has expressed that Greece’s efforts towards border security contribute to European security and a more integrated and effective European asylum policy.
