Pavlos Geroulanos, a former socialist minister for culture, has announced he will run for mayor of Athens.

In a statement posted on his website, Geroulanos said his intentions are not similar to those of politicians “who regard the office as a career path.”

The announcement came a week after incumbent Mayor Giorgos Kaminis said he would not seek a third term.
