Date: 06.07.2019 / GreekCityTimes.com / Comments (0)

Greek citizens have voted in Kyriakos Mitsotakis and the New Democracy Party in today’s general elections.

SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras has called Mitsotakis to congratulate him on his party’s victory.

The official handover of power where Mitsotakis will be sworn in as Prime Minister will take place on Monday at Maximos Mansion.

In his victory speech on Sunday night, Mitsotakis vowed to “work hard to represent all Greeks.”

“Society delivered a clear message in favor of growth, job-creation and security” and that “transparency and meritocracy will return to Greece, and our country’s voice in Europe will be strengthened,” he continued.

According to sources, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan was the first to call and congratulate Mitsotakis.

President of the Hellenic Republic Prokopios Pavlopoulos and Nicos Anastasiades, the President of Cyprus have also spoken with Mitsotakis to congratulate him for his victory.

Greece’s next Prime Minister who took leadership of New Democracy three years ago, has pledged to create “better” jobs through growth, foreign investment and tax cuts and to “steamroll” obstacles to business.

In the wake of defeat, outgoing Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras stated he respected the will of the Greek people who voted New Democracy to power. He further added that he takes responsibility for SYRIZA’s defeat and vowed to “transform” it into a “big progressive democratic party.”

“In my life and my political career I have learned to fight. Anyone who does not fight does not make mistakes. Anyone who struggles knows how to win and also knows how to lose. But most of all, he learns to stand up again when he falls and continue fighting. That’s what I’m going to do, that’s what we are going to do,” Tsipras concluded.
