Greece’s new conservative parliament convenes after elections

Greece's new parliament is sworn in after July 7 elections that saw a broad conservative victory end over four years of leftist rule. The 51 members of the new government swore the oath of office on the Bible in a ceremony led by the Archbishop of Athens Ieronymos, in line with Greek tradition. That further underlined the break with the term of defeated leftist prime minister Alexis Tsipras, an atheist, who had taken the oath in a civil ceremony in 2015. Mitsotakis, a pro-business conservative, has vowed to ditch Tsipras's proposals to separate Church and state. IMAGES
