ATHENS – A minute’s silence in the memory of veteran leftist Manolis Glezos was observed in the Greek parliament during the meetings of the committees on economic and social affairs on Tuesday.

“He represented Greek people in a dignified and noteworthy manner as a member of parliament,” said New Democracy’s Vassilis Economou, chairman of the committee on social affairs.

“Manolis Glezos was a great Greek,” said Syriza’s Nikos Pappas, “who dedicated his life to democracy, freedom and the struggles against fascism.”

Vassilis Viliardos of Greek Solution party called Glezos “a real patriot” and expressed his deep condolences to his family.
