Greece has the first female president: Sakellaropoulou elected with the vote bipartisan
Greece has for the first time in its history a woman president. The hellenic Parliament has elected, in fact, as the head of state Katerina Sakellaropoulou , which up until a week ago - before the application - it was at the summit of the Council of state. The judge has been appointed to the first step in the classroom with 261 votes out of 300, thanks to the support of bipartisan (rather unusual in Athens) of the centre-right government of Nea Demokratia and the left of Syriza. Sakellaropoulou will officially begin its mandate on march 13, taking the place in the office of Prokopis Pavlopoulos.

The appointment overwhelmingly for the new president of the Republic is a skilled shot political of prime minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis put in difficulty in the last few weeks on the domestic front by the exclusion of Greece from the table in peace negotiations on Libya in Berlin. Alexis Tsipras - who had appointed to the Council of State - could not miss its support. "Sakellaropoulou is a candidate in a sign of unity and progress - said Mitostakis resentando his name in front of the Parliament - and opens to the Greece ports of the future". Also, the ex-premier of Syriza has applauded the vote: "And' a woman who has always defended justice, to the secular nature of the state and the rights of the citizens - he said -. The choice gives farza all the values progressives defended when he was a judge."

Sakellaropoulou has a profile that is decidedly institutional: there has never deployed politically, has a large international experience (with master's degree in administrative and constitutional law at the Sorbonne, taken during a sabbatical year), and has recently become the president of the Greek society for environmental law, a field which has directed much of his more recent work. Born in Thessaloniki - and tifosissima of the Aris - is divorced and the mother of a son, lives in the centre of Athens, is very active on social media and a great lover of cats.

"The Republic will fight always in defense of the freedom of information, to its readers and to all those who have at heart the principles of democracy and civil coexistence"
