Thessaloniki mayoral candidate to contest national election with ND

Thessaloniki mayoral candidate to contest national election with ND

Nikos Tahiaos, the failed mayoral candidate in Thessaloniki in the local elections of May 26-June 2, will be a Parliamentary candidate for New Democracy in the multi-seat Thessaloniki A constituency in the July 7 election.

Tahiaos himself made the announcement Saturday on his Facebook page, saying that ND president Kyriakos Mitsotakis asked him to contest a seat. Tahiaos added that he will keep his seat at the Thessaloniki city council even if elected MP.

Tahiaos, New Democracy's officially sanctioned mayoral candidate, surprisingly lost in a runoff to Konstantinos Zervas, a New Democracy dissident.
