We owe them a lot and we owe them a living memory and a conscience.” On his part, the mayor of Chania Panayiotis Imandrakis said: “The annual memorial of Eleftherios and Sophocles Venizelos, is an opportunity to reflect on the modern course of Greece, their achievements the disasters and how Greece can choose, plan and succeed.

As he said: “The government has taken an initiative which will now be implemented by the state. The occupations are not many, they go downhill. In any case, the effort of the Greek government and our ministry is in line with what we were campaigning for and we must implement. Attention is now focused on the proper working out of proposals from foreign universities. The standards are so strict, the strictest ones in Europe. They are all discussed when establishing and operating foreign branches of foreign universities, which are not of a speculative nature. I’m sure there are few reactions apparently from people who didn’t study the law. When they see the multiple benefits, reactions will be bent. Our goal is for foreign parties to operate from the next school season.”
