Tsipras Welcomes New PM Thanou at His Office in Handover Ceremony

Alexis Tsipras welcomed newly sworn-in Prime Minister Vassiliki Thanou at his office at Maximos Mansion on Thursday evening in a handover ceremony, saying he will do everything in his power to create a "civilised" environment for the elections.
"I’m delighted to welcome you because I welcome the first female prime minister in the history of Greek democracy. I am sure that both you and the caretaker government you will appoint tomorrow will do your best. I wanted to wish you the best. I will do everything possible to hold elections in a civilized environment,” Tsipras told Thanou in their first face-to-face meeting.
On her side, Thanou said that although the main role of a caretaker government is to hold elections, it may need to take action on ongoing crises such as migration. “The caretaker government, as everyone knowns, has as its main role to conduct fair elections. But I believe that this government will be called to address crucial issues, such as migration,” Thanou replied, adding that her government will do all they can to carry out its responsibilities in the best possible way.
