    On Saturday morning, Professor Thanasis Diamantopoulos handed in his resignation to the Minister of Internal Affairs, Prokopis Pavlopoulos, from the seat of President of the Public Administration National Centre. "The reason of my resignation is the pressure I was submitted to by the Centre's secretary Mr Voutsinos, in order to hire the minister's former associate Thanasis Choupis to teach at the School," stressed Mr Diamantopoulos. His resignation was accepted, while he was asked to remain at office until June in order to find his replacement.
