ATHENS – President of the Hellenic Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou on Sunday hosted a large fete in the gardens of the presidential mansion to mark the World Children’s Day, attended by more than 45 children from the SOS Children’s Village in Vari as well as other young people and their parents.
Sakellaropoulou, in a post on Facebook, highlighted the need to respect children’s rights to protected innocence:
“Let us give all these children a family, an environment of love and care in which they can blossom and prosper in their most important, their formative years. Building a present that is harmonious for children we not only fulfil a social duty but lay the foundations for a brighter future and a better world,” she said.
ATHENS — Greece’s government is seeking to ban a far-right political party led by a jailed former lawmaker from participating in a general election later this year, with a legislative initiative that has gained cross-party support.
