Cabinet meeting names new Supreme Court president and chief prosecutor

A cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Wednesday unanimously adopted a proposal made by Justice Minister Kostas Tsiaras to promote Iosif Tsalaganidis, current the Supreme Court’s Vice-President, to the position of Supreme Court president. It also named the new chief prosecutor of the Supreme Court, promoting the Supreme Court’s current deputy prosecutor, Vasilios Pliotas, to the position.

Tsalaganidis and Pliotas had collected the greatest number of votes out of the candidates considered by the conference of parliament presidents for the two positions.
