  • [01] Dimitris Sioufas elected new President of Parliament

    Dimitris Sioufas of the ruling New Democracy (ND) party was elected as the new president of the 300-member unicameral Hellenic Parliament on Thursday with 158 votes for and 141 blank votes, while only one MP was absent.

    Sioufas, an MP from Karditsa, was the candidate nominated by prime minister Costas Karamanlis for the parliament presidency.

    Greece's new parliament, which emerged from the September 16 general elections and was sworn in on Wednesday, convened shortly before noon on Thursday to elect the House's new president.

    The parliament plenary will convene again at 6:00 Thursday afternoon to elect the House's five parliamentary vice-presidents, which are distributed among the three top parties, with the first three parliamentary vice-presidential positions going to the ruling ND party, the fourth position going to main opposition PASOK and the fifth going to the Communist Party of Greece (KKE).

    On Friday, a three-day debate on the new government's policy statements begins, to be read out by Prime Minister Karamanlis, with the discussions ending at midnight Sunday, followed by a vote of confidence for the new government.
