President Sakellaropoulou: Democracy Does Not Discriminate

THESSALONIKI — Democracy and the rule of law do not discriminate between citizens and all people are equal before the law," the President of the Hellenic Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou said on Wednesday during her visit to the Center for the Protection of Children "Faros tou Kosmou", in Dendropotamos, in the municipality of Ampelokipi Menemeni, Thessaloniki.

On the occasion of the speech of the Metropolitan of Neapolis Stavroupolis, Varnavas, who said that the Church teaches us to love all people without discrimination, Sakellaropoulou noted: "A state governed by the rule of law is non-discriminatory, there are no first, second or any other class of citizens, all people are equal before the law in a state governed by the rule of law, such as our homeland."

"In order to fully attain this, however, because reality is not always what Constitutions envision, steps must be taken, a distance must be covered and it is not just the legislation, it is not just about the letters, it is specifically the work that needs to be done, the heart and soul that one must invest and the personal work that one must offer," the President underlined.
