ND's Meimarakis, MEP candidate, gives up his seat in Greek parliament
EUROKINISSI

Main opposition New Democracy (ND) member of parliament Evangelos Meimarakis resigned his seat in the Greek parliament in order to run for a seat in the European Parliament elections in May.

Meimarakis, who is heading ND's euroballot, submitted his resignation in a letter to parliament president Nikos Voutsis on Thursday saying he refuses to make use of a recent amendment that allows Eurodeputy candidates to retain their seats in the Greek parliament.

The second runner-up Zoe Rapti will replace Meimarakis, who was voted in by the second Athens district, as first runner-up Argyris Dinopoulos said he will not take the seat.
