Olympiacos FC leader and Piraeus City Councillor Evangelos Marinakis, who received the most votes in the recent municipal elections, told journalists after casting his vote today that,"A new day is beginning for the Greek people and all together we shall try to make a new Greece in which the sacrifices of the Greek people will be vindicated".
Cosco's presence has over recent years placed Greece's premier port city on the investment map, as was confirmed by the meeting that took place at the Municipal Theatre of Piraeus on 21 June.
The overarching conclusion of the meeting was that Piraeus can and must become a magnet for global investment in the years to come.
An unconventional combination of aquatic fun and music, the Waterboom Festival takes place at the Olympic Stadium of Athens (OAKA) on Saturday, June 22. The festival features more than a dozen local music acts, including rappers Above the Hood, FY, Light, Mad Clip and Sink, and an eclectic mix of DJs.
It has been nine years, and yet it seems like yesterday. It is that "huge" sound that the port makes on everything that decides the present and future of Olympiacos. The discussion is about Sokratis Kokkalis who with the passing of time wants to withdraw, but mainly about the new, Vangelis Marinakis, the son of Miltiadis, who was raised in Karaiskaki Stadium.
Greek police Friday were investigating a suspected arson attack on a tourist bus near downtown Karaiskaki Square at around 5 a.m.
Two fire engines were dispatched to respond to the incident.
The vehicle, believed to be owned by an Albanian company, was completely destroyed but there were no reports of injuries.
Olympiacos FC leader Vangelis Marinakis stressed the need for unity among the citizens of Piraeus and underlined that there are no losers in the Piraeus mayoral race in which incumbent Yannis Moralis won a second term.
Marinakis was the City Councilman who won re-election on Moralis' Piraeus Victorious ticket with most votes of any candidate.
Evangelos Marinakis - in his capacity as a candidate for the Piraeus City Council on the Piraeus Victorious ticket and chief of the city's Olympiacos FC - today lambasted the government and PM Alexis Tsipras in particular in a no-holds-barred interview with journalist Yorgos Tragas on Parapolitika 90.1 radio.
