“Your engagement with public affairs since 2014, your repeated election by the local community, as well as the assumption of a series of state and political offices are living proof of both your abilities and knowledge as well as the trust and respect held by your fellow citizens in your person.”

The Secretary General added that given all Mr Dimopoulos has achieved in public affairs so far, he is “absolutely sure that you will continue to serve your fellow citizens in the best possible way.”
