  • [01] EPP congratulates ND on local election showing

    European Peoples' Party (EPP) President Wilfried Martens on Tuesday congratulated ruling New Democracy party on what he called the party's victory in municipal and prefectural elections held in Greece last Sunday.

    An EPP statement issued from Brussels stresses that New Democracy managed to strengthen its standing nationwide, compared to the 2002 local government elections, and that once again its candidates prevailed in the municipalities of Athens and Thessaloniki.

    EPP added that New Democracy and Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis scored a major victory, proving that the current government is doing a very good job, while Martens also expressed certainty that the successful trend will continue in any upcoming parliamentary elections in Greece.
