His office has already clarified that Prime Minister K. Mitsotakis will attend today both events of a strongly political nature that are taking place at the same time, one for K. Simitis and one in memory of Marietta Giannakou. The interest lies elsewhere.
According to the announcement of the prime minister’s office, Mr. Mitsotakis will first go to the Concert Hall, where the event for Marietta Giannakou starts at seven in the afternoon, and then to the event for K. Simitis, which starts at the same time at the Cultural Center in Neos People.
The program of the first event states that former Prime Minister K. Karamanlis, who will also be the keynote speaker at the memorial event for the former ND minister, will begin his speech at 8:30 p.m. and finish at 8:55 p.m. That is, more than five minutes and two hours after the start of the event for former Prime Minister K. Simitis, which will be attended by all members of the ND and many others.
So, the question is reasonable: Will Mr. Mitsotakis go to the commemoration event for the historical member of the ND and will he leave before the speech of K. Karamanlis, in order to be able to go to the other one in time, or will he “throw off” the event for Kostas Simitis? Both versions have their interest. Mainly because of the prime minister’s choice to go first to the Concert Hall and then to the one at the Culture Center.
