Any Attempt by Golden Dawn to Force Elections Could Backfire, Deputy PM Says

The far-right Golden Dawn party would damage itself if it attempts to trigger elections by walking out of parliament, deputy prime minister Evangelos Venizelos told Reuters.
According to Greek media reports, Golden Dawn is contemplating walking out of Parliament after a government crackdown. The party has 18 MPs in the 300-seat parliament.
"This is a kind of political suicide for them," Venizelos told Reuters. "It's not a threat. It's a great opportunity."
Support for Golden Dawn has dropped by a third this month after an anti-racism rapper was stabbed to death by a self-proclaimed supporter, the news agency reports. Golden Dawn denied it had anything to do with the killing.
