Greece PM Mitsotakis Announces Date For Parliamentary Electi

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Tuesday confirmed May 21 as the date for the country's parliamentary elections.

After four years at the helm, Mitsotakis said he wanted a clean slate to push through further reforms.

Mitsotakis said; "The country and its citizens need clear horizons the national elections will be held at the end of the four-year term, as I had committed from the start."

Mitsotakis's New Democracy Party has held a comfortable lead over opposition leftist Syriza since it came to power in 2019.

But a February 28 rail disaster that killed 57 people has stirred public anger.

The rail disaster on the Athens-Thessaloniki route sparked protests over safety shortcomings and poorly maintained network.

Mitsotakis said the experience of the rail disaster highlighted deficiencies the state still had.

He added; "Overturning all these is a clear priority for the next day."
