SYRIZA expresses condolences for death of Constantine Mitsotakis

The left-wing SYRIZA party, the leader of Greece’s ruling coalition government, on Monday expressed condolences for the death of former Greek premier and honorary New Democracy party leader Constantine Mitsotakis.

“Through his presence in the country’s public life, from the first post-war years until recently, Constantine Mitsotakis left an indelible mark, having served as the president of parties, an MP for decades, a minister and prime minister,” SYRIZA’s message read.

“Active until the last moment, he was undoubtedly a strong personality, which has already found its place in the pages of the country’s modern history. We expressed our warm condolences to ND President Kyriakos Mitsotakis, Dora Bakoyannis and to all his family and loved ones,” the message said.
