Tzitzikostas to join MP meeting
Interim New Democracy leader Evangelos Meimarakis, who is also running in the conservatives’ upcoming leadership race, has invited fellow contender Apostolos Tzitzikostas to attend the next meeting of party MPs. Meimarakis said that the regional governor of Central Macedonia should express his opinion of what the party’s stance should be during the upcoming confidence vote and the ballot on the implementation laws of the troikamandated reforms. Meimarakis said the decision was backed by the other two contenders, namely former ministers Kyriakos Mitsotakis and Adonis Georgiadis. ND’s central election committee is set to decide today on the date and procedure of the leadership vote.
