Patras, as we say, Thessaloniki and the three “Sigmas” – News – news
Maybe most of you haven’t noticed, but now with his tour Prime Minister in Achaiaits capital Patrasit reminds me more and more… Thessaloniki and in particular… TEF. And I explain myself. As it happens in every TIF where the government echelons tour the prefectures, it also happened in Patras with the appearance of a government echelon before the arrival of the Prime Minister. Projects (and measures) are announced at the TIF. The same thing happened in Patras with the announcement of about 80 projects in the city and in the prefecture. The Prime Minister’s speech to the productive classes dominates the TIF. In Patras, Mr. Mitsotakis’ open speech to the productive classes. TIF is given the day after the press conference.
This will also happen in Patras and I am told that due to the pre-election period, the press conference to the journalists of Achaia is of interest, since it will also be held on the subject of wiretapping, as well as accuracy. What I also learned is that the Prime Minister will say that the government responds to toxicity with projects (railways, roads, ports, etc.) and will refer to the government’s motto of the three “Sigmas” (Assurance, Consistency, Continuity). He does not fail to make a reference to the electoral law, saying: “Simple proportionality is a recipe for lack of governance.” Thus, Patras is transformed, with the Prime Minister present in Achaia, in Thessaloniki and indeed in a pre-election period.
How Athens and Cairo neutralized the Turkish-Libyan memorandum
You see, I believe this photo of Tayyip Erdogan shaking hands with Egyptian President Sisi and the Turkish media celebrating that new relations are being built between Turkey and Egypt. These celebrations would probably end yesterday at noon with the signing of the extremely important Greece-Egypt agreement on the definition of the Investigation and Dissolution areas, which are now identified with the FIRs of Athens and Cairo. But why is it so important?
Because the agreement implements a new operational plan for the demarcated area between the two states, and effectively cancels the illegal Turkish-Libyan monument. And the most important; Greece and Egypt recognize that the area south of Crete and the Eastern Aegean to the Egyptian coast is controlled exclusively by Athens and Cairo.
5,000 Egyptian land workers are coming
In Egypt, however, an international bilateral agreement was signed (perhaps for the first time at a diplomatic level) for the employment of 5,000 seasonal land workers. The agreement was signed by Deputy Foreign Minister Miltiadis Varvitsiotis with his Egyptian counterpart for European Affairs Ihab Nasr. What does this agreement provide? It provides for the entry and residence in Greece of labor force from the Arab Republic of Egypt, for the purpose of seasonal employment in the agricultural sector. These are 5,000 land workers, during the first year of piloting, with a duration of stay of up to nine (9) months per one-year period. The Agreement aims to meet labor needs in the agricultural sector, while it may become a “guide” for future agreements of our country and the EU as a whole with third countries to combat illegal immigration.
Standard Soccer Players!
What was his job on Sunday morning? Dimitris Koutsoubas outside the AEK stadium? The Secretary of the KKE was in New Philadelphia for the unveiling of an honorary plaque of the KKE in honor of the struggle of the EAM resistance and legendary football player of AEK, Spyros Kontoulis. As Koutsoubas said, “We want the new generations to remember Kotouli of AEK, Goda of Olympiakos, Messaris of Panathinaikos and so many other footballers, athletes, fighters who even gave their lives for great, great ideals. They are models, symbols, both for their teams and for the fans, older, younger, today’s fans, for their struggle both in the ball fields, but also in the big field of life, fighting for what is right . people and the advancement of this place.”
For those who don’t know, Angelos Messaris, Panathinaikos football player, was a member of OKNE, and one of the first to take part in the Resistance, who preferred to stop playing football, rather than renounce his ideas. Nikos Godas, Olympiacos football player, was held in 1948 in the Lazaretto of Corfu, he does not sign a “declaration of repentance” for his ideas no matter how many times he was asked and his last wish was to die wearing the Olympiacos jersey. He was only 27 years old.
of Institutions and Transparency, part 2, for follow-ups
The case of the monitoring will concern the Institutions and Transparency Committee again, at the new meeting scheduled for Monday. The new meeting was set after the requests submitted by the parliamentary groups of SYRIZA, PASOK and KKE, so that the former general secretary of the government, Grigoris Dimitriadis, should appear and testify, both on the connections and on the operation of the Predator . and Felix Bitzios and Yiannis Lavranos, as well as Israeli businessman Tal Dilian. The opposition even requested that if the aforementioned do not come to testify, then they should be forcibly brought in, a request that the majority rejects.
The three proposals for the Ark of the World
An extraordinary meeting led by the Prime Minister at the Maximos Palace against the background of the continuation of the Ark of the World which did not last more than an hour. Which means that decisions were made quickly and unanimously. Three proposals were immediately on the table: The first was to take no action until the prosecutor’s investigation was concluded, the second was to appoint a (government) commissioner and the third, which was qualified, was to “dismiss” its entire Board of Directors. Ark and to be removed immediately. With a law passed by the Parliament by the Deputy Minister Domna Michailidou, the temporary administrative scheme can have a lifetime of up to one year, until a regular administration is appointed. Mrs. Alexandra Martinou, who is the president of the European Union “Together for the Child”, was appointed to the position of president for the new administration, whose term is one year.
That which matters, as said in the meeting of Maximus, will continue in the operation of the Ark. This function is not based on a state grant, but on a private one, since 99% of its internal funds come from grants or donations. to have… The Ark’s budget for 2022 was around 5 million euros, mostly based on donations. You, care for the state was that the hundreds of children and beneficiaries of the Ark would not be left without a home.
Who is the new President of the Ark?
THE Alexandra Martinou is an economist and president of the Union “Together for the Child”. The Union (also awarded by the Academy of Athens) was founded in 1996 as an association of non-profit associations and foundations, offering services to more than 30,000 children in Greece annually. She is married to Andreas Martinos, a member of the Martinos family of shipowners. Together they had three children, Atalanti, Kiko and Aliki. All three of their children graduated from Athens College, while Aliki married director Denis Iliadis with whom she had a child. Before marrying Marina Livanou, Kikos was a sought-after bachelor.
The chef of the Presidential Palace is the best chef in Europe
The head chef of the Presidency of the Hellenic Republic Vasilis Bekas He was awarded as part of the 19th Congress of Gastronomy and Oenology of the Council, as the best cook in Europe. Before I tell you about the excellent, Greek-filled dish with which he was awarded, I inform you that Chef Bekas cooks exquisite food, for the homeless and for people in need, quietly, without anyone knowing. And yet this award-winning cook does not usually participate as “first violin” in the official dinners that the President of the Republic hosts for her distinguished guests. The President mostly enlists notables (and also award-winning chefs), but outside the Presidential Palace,. Some even, as I learn, offer their services on a non-profit basis.
The dishes that gave chef Vassilis Bekas the first place were gyros, kebabs, souvlaki, trachanas with pork, noodles with chicken, lentils in cold form, chickpeas, beans, olives, country salad and pies. Of course, Greek cheeses (feta, gravies, caseria, anthotyra, manouria), spoon sweets, Greek jams, honey, olive oil and wines from our country’s vineyards also played an important role.
Children came with bright faces ready to face the miracle
However, know that Chef Bekas prepared delicacies for the children who visited the Presidential Palace last Sunday on the occasion of International Children’s Day. Children from the SOS Children’s Village of Vari came, with bright faces, ready to face the miracle everywhere, in a flower, a butterfly, a toy, they played and had fun for a long time. Other children came with them and shared moments of carefree and joy. Seeing them, the thought inevitably turns to all the little ones who have known from their tender age the darker and wilder side of life. Children abused, neglected, scared, condemned to a vast, stark loneliness. Violence, said the President of the Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou, against children, verbal, physical, sexual, is a crime.
