Of­fice dis­pute.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The Union of Cen­trists, which en­tered Greece’s Par­lia­ment in gen­eral elec­tions last month, has yet to se­cure an of­fice for the party in the House due to the re­fusal of former So­cial­ist prime min­is­ter Costas Simi­tis to give up his spa­cious premises there in ex­change for a smaller of­fice. Ac­cord­ing to sources, Simi­tis was asked to va­cate his of­fice in Par­lia­ment’s cen­tral build­ing, which cov­ers 70 square me­ters, and move to a smaller of­fice in the same build­ing or a larger premises in a dif­fer­ent build­ing. Simi­tis re­fused, how­ever. An­other former So­cial­ist pre­mier, Ge­orge Pa­pan­dreou, mean­while, agreed to move to a smaller of­fice in Par­lia­ment to make room for the new Par­lia­ment Speaker Nikos Vout­sis. Vout­sis thanked Pa­pan­dreou for his ges­ture in a let­ter.
