Mitsotakis back as Greek premier

ATHENS (AFP) – Conservative leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis embarked yesterday on his second term as Greece’s Prime Minister with a vow to accelerate institutional and economic reforms, after voters handed him a huge election victory for the second time in five weeks.

Crediting Mitsotakis and his New Democracy party for bringing economic stability to the erstwhile European Union debt laggard, voters gave the conservatives their widest winning margin in almost 50 years on Sunday.
