Mitsotakis in Easter Message: A New, More Hopeful Time for Greece about to Begin

April 29, 2019

With the wish that “the light of the resurrection will show the way to a brighter, better Greece,” main opposition New Democracy leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis wished a happy Easter to all, in a message on Orthodox Easter Sunday.

“Our thoughts today are with every Greek woman and every Greek man, especially those who have had the hardest time in recent years. The message to everyone is that our country’s Calvary is coming to an end. We are on the cusp of a passage to a new, more hopeful time. With solidarity, unanimity and faith in the strength of the Greeks we will prevail,” Mitsotakis said.

As Greeks throughout the world celebrated Easter and the resurrection, he noted, “we draw strength from our faith, from the victory of life, light and hope.”
