    Asked by a journalist, during his regular briefing to the media, if the President of the Republic, Nikos Christodoulidis, has made his own decisions regarding the election of the President of the European Commission, then the public support of the Prime Ministers of Greece and Poland in Ursula von der Leyen's candidacy for a second term, but also for his participation in the European People's Party (EPP) and if he is entitled to vote together with the leaders in the EPP, Mr. Letympiotis stated that the participation of President Christodoulidis in the EPP, ” it is something that has been answered, not now but since March 2023 when he received the first invitation to participate in the EPP”.
