The Public Power Corporations' President and CEO, Manolis Panagiotakis, submitted his resignation today at a meeting with newly-appointed Environment and Energy Minister Kostis Hatzidakis.
At the request of the minister Panagiotakis has reportedly agreed to stay on in his post pending the appointment of a successor.
As the results poured in after the polls closed Sunday night, it quickly became evident that Kyriakos Mitsotakis and his center-right New Democracy party would have a comfortable majority in the new Parliament. Also, that while Alexis Tsipras and his SYRIZA movement had lost power they maintained a strong presence.
The result of yesterday's general election is a great victory for New Democracy and for Kyriakos Mitsotakis personally.
Greek citizens handed him a strong majority in order to deliver on what he had promised during the campaign.
