Conservative Candidate Leads in Thessaloniki’s Municipal Race

The candidate representing the New Democracy Party, Nikos Tahiaos, recorded a clear lead in the race for Thessaloniki’s Mayoral office on Sunday election.

With almost 60 percent of the votes counted, Tahiaos and his ”Thessaloniki Responsibly” team have received 22.5 percent of the vote.

There is a battle going on for second place between ex-minister George Orfanos, Konstantinos Zervas and the SYRIZA-backed candidate, Katerina Notopoulou.

Tahiaos will compete with the candidate coming in second for the mayoral office of Greece’s second largest city, and the capital of Central Macedonia, on Sunday, June 2.
