Week 12-19/1/2020: The proposal for the President of the Hellenic Republic


This week the prime minister announced the proposal of the government regarding the post of the President of the Hellenic Republic. The candidate is Katerina Sakellaropoulou which currently serves as president of the Council of State (the Supreme Administrative Court of the country). Most of the oppositional parties reacted positively to her candidacy and, therefore, it is assumed that her nomination will be confirmed by the parliament later this month. This is a historic moment for the country since it is the first time that a woman is nominated for the head of the state.
