Top courts lack pres­i­dents

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Four for­mer heads of the Coun­cil of State, Greece’s high­est ad­min­is­tra­tive court, met Jus­tice Min­is­ter Nikos Paraskevopou­los yesterday to ex­press their con­cern that two of the coun­try’s three high­est courts have been with­out pres­i­dents since the sum­mer. Paraskevopou­los as­sured his four visi­tors that the va­can­cies at the helms of the Coun­cil of State and the Court of Au­dit would be filled soon. He said the de­lay in ap­point­ing new court pres­i­dents had been caused by the po­lit­i­cal de­vel­op­ments over the last few months, in­clud­ing the ref­er­en­dum in July and the snap elec­tions on Septem­ber 20.
