Woman nominated for the top post in Greece

17-1-2020

Greek prime minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, on Wednesday nominated progressive female judge, Ekaterini Sakellaropoulou, as head of the state. To note, that should the Greek legislature approves said nomination, the judge (63), who heads the Council of State, will become the first woman to assume this honorary post in Greece. On this, Mitsotakis said in a televised address: “It is time for Greece to open up to the future.” He stressed that his choice breaks the mold, not because Sakellaropoulou is a woman, but because she does not belong to any party. Her nomination reflects unity and progress, he stated. For her part, Sakellaropoulou, told the official INI news agency that her candidacy was an honor for her, expressing willingness to devote all efforts to serve this high duty.
