The interior, decentralisation and e-governance ministry on Monday announced the appointment of Calliope Spanou to replace George Kaminis as the new Greek Ombudsman, based on a decision of the conference of Parliament presidents.
Spanou was previously the deputy ombudsman at the authority and took over when Kaminis gave up his post to run for Athens Mayor. She will continue to head the independent authority until the end of Kaminis' term on February 20, 2012.
