"It is a special honour to receive this mandate to form a government with a four-year horizon," New Democracy (ND) leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis said in his meeting with the President of the Hellenic Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou at the Presidential Mansion on Monday morning.

The leader of ND reiterated that he is aware that the "responsibility lies heavy on my shoulders" and pointed out that his goal from the beginning had been to form a single-party government, while he once again pledged to initiate major changes and reforms."We have a strong mandate and a parliamentary majority, our government will be a government of hard work and practical results," noted Mitsotakis.

He explained that democracy is mature and able to handle temporary upheavals and said that the eight-party Parliament was the "death rattle of simple proportional representation".On her part, Sakellaropoulou underlined that "our democracy proved resilient" and wished Mitsotakis success in the work ahead.
