Anna Michel Asimakopoulou: The Communist Party requested by letter the convening of the Committee on Institutions and Transparency

By letter to the President of the Committee on Institutions and Transparency, he calls for its immediate convening of her case In their letter to President of the Committee on Institutions and Transparency Thanasis Boura, MEPs of the Communist Party – members of the committee say that the government of the South West and the Ministry of the Interior have responsibilities for leaking personal data from foreign voters to Anna Michel Asimakopoulou. The Communist Party raises three questions which, as it says, call for an answer. He notes that these issues are related to the protection of the indivisible elections that the Communist Party had set up since the first moment, based on negative international experience. In detail the JRC’s letter “The government of the NW and the leadership of the Ministry of Interior are heavily exposed for leaking the personal data of the voters abroad. Their responsibilities cannot be hidden either by the withdrawal of Mrs Asimakopoulou from the New Democracy Euro-digital system or by the removal of some of the ND’s service agents and executives. The excuses that the leak of evidence occurred during the period of the service government challenge the intelligence of the people. The questions are relentless and must be answered: Firstly, how could personal data be leaked in May 2023 to be used after 10 months in the face of the European elections? Secondly, what are the conditions for protecting the personal data of the voters when they so easily leak to officials of the ruling party? Thirdly, how can the current leadership of the Ministry of the Interior be ‘notified’ when the complaints concern both the platform of national elections and that of the epistolic vote? When it is further verified that the message of information about the epistolic vote and Mrs Asimakopoulou’ advertising message were sent with a little time difference, which highlights some kind of coordination? Fourthly, how can all this happen without knowledge, if not the encouragement of the leadership of the Ministry of Interior? In any case there is huge – at least – political responsibility. This responsibility becomes even greater, because from the publication of the complaints of the voters – whose data were used – until resignations there were persistent and unacceptable statements of disorientation and expediency that refer to a conscious and deliberate attempt to cover up responsibilities Fifthly, how can the government reassure the people of the epistolic vote, when under the law the personal data of the voters will now be available not only to the state services, but also to private companies and even foreign countries, which will carry out the procedures of the epistolic vote? It should be noted that foreign voters do not even have the alternative to self-representation in polling stations, since such is not envisaged abroad. These are issues regarding the protection of the inviolable elections that the KKE had put up from the very first moment, based on the negative international experience, when the government of the ND brought the bill on the epistolic vote, initially supported by SYRIZA and PASOK. For these reasons we are calling for the immediate convocation of the Committee on Institutions and Transparency, in accordance with Rules 43a and 146 of the Rules of Procedure of the House, in order to call on: 1. The Minister of Interior Mrs.N. Kerameos, who has the political responsibility to answer the above questions and inform the Commission of the findings of the investigation which led to the resignation of the Secretary General of the Ministry of Interior Mr. M. Stavraniudakis, testifying to the relevant findings. 2. Anna – Michelle Asimakopoulou and 3. The President of the Data Protection Authority of Personal Character (APP) Mr. K. Menoudakos to inform the Commission of the progress of the investigation conducted by the Authority in this case.
