The New Right (Greek: Νέα Δεξιά, Nea Dexia) is a national conservative[1] and far-right[2] political party in Greece. The party was formed in May 2016 by Failos Kranidiotis, a lawyer and former advisor to former Prime Minister Antonis Samaras, after Kranidiotis was ousted from the New Democracy party.[2][3]

History

Failos Kranidiotis, a lawyer and former advisor to ex-Prime Minister Antonis Samaras, founded the new party in May 2016, shortly after he was ousted from the conservative New Democracy party, by leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis over controversial online comments.[2]

In June 2016, Kranidiotis announced the party's National Council (presidium).[4][5]

The New Right has been a member of the Movement for a Europe of Nations and Freedom since 2018.[6][7][8][9]
