The European Parliament named one of its chambers after the late former conservative prime minister Constantinos Mitsotakis in a special ceremony on Thursday. A marble plaque was unveiled by German MEP and head of the European People’s Party Manfred Weber and European Parliament President Antonio Tajani. Weber described the former leader of New Democracy and father of the incumbent party chief Kyriakos Mitsotakis as a "great politician who dedicated his life to Greece and to Europe." "It was an honor to be at the inauguration," Weber said. The event was also attended by the members of the statesman’s family, including Kyriakos Mitsotakis. [ANA-MPA]
