Boutaris to announce whether he will seek a third term


Thessaloniki Mayor Yiannis Boutaris was on Wednesday expected to announce whether he will run in municipal elections next year.

The 76-year-old, who has in the past suggested that two terms are enough for a mayor, is scheduled to hold a press briefing on Thursday.

Born into Greece’s oldest winemaking dynasty, Boutaris was elected as an independent mayor of Greece’s northern port city in November 2010.
