Mitsotakis urges inclusion of Australian candidate in upcoming Euro elections

·

The Prime Minister of Greece, Kyriakos Mitsotakis has revealed that Greece’s New Democracy party will have a candidate in Australia for the upcoming European elections.

This will be reflected with other parties as well.

“It is our responsibility to ensure that on the European ballots we have representatives from the diaspora – from the USA, from Canada and from Australia – who will be able to mobilize our fellow citizens to vote from those countries where we have a large diaspora presence and also vie for election to the European Parliament,” Mitsotakis said.

“I remind you that we have the cross, and the cross is a deeply open and democratic, competitive process.”

Mitsotakis made this statement in discussion with Hellenic American Chamber of Commerce president Nikolaos Bakatselos during an event called ‘Fostering a Sustainable Economic Future Amidst Global Challenges’.
