January 11, 2019

New Democracy (ND) hails the nomination of Dora Bakoyannis as Secretary-General of the Council of Europe, according to a party statement issued on Friday.

This is a great honour for Greece, ND’s statement continued, as for the first time a politician from Greece is nominated for such a high-ranking and important political position.

The main opposition party thanked the Republic of Cyprus for nominating and supporting Bakoyiannis’ candidacy, and said it expects the government to do the same.


ATHENS - The tragic death of a 22-year-old British tourist killed when hit by a helicopter blade after he just got off is seen likely to change safety measures for such flights in Greece that have become more popular.
