Trees for recruiting women: In the coming weeks the regulation

In clarification of the voluntary recruitment of women, the Minister of National Defence went on to attend an event organized by OHIM for the woman’s world day by Nikos Dendias said the arrangement would be presented in the coming weeks. “Starting from cadet officers with specific specialties, which will serve for a period of time and slowly – moving on to broader sections of the female population, who would like to wear this honorable, but also very beautiful uniform you wear,” said the Minister of National Defence, among other things. Among other things, Mr. Dendias said: “…I have repeatedly said that the Government and I personally, that the great, vast majority of Greek society believe in the civil army. He believes too much in the armed citizen. Of course the torso is always the professional torso of the worthy officers of the Armed Forces. But also in the geopolitical context in which we are moving, and in the numerical context, we have a threat from a country much superior to us, which will approach by the mid-century or even exceed 100 million, we will be at 11-12 million. So our simple arithmetic imposes on the Army of Citizens…” Explaining the intention to implement the voluntary recruitment of women, Mr. Dendias noted: “So when we talk about the Civil Army, you understand that it is completely inconsistent to exclude half the population from this thought. It was like Hellenism instead of 11 million, suddenly becoming 5.5 million…” Mr. Dendias recalled that the relevant legislation has existed since 1977, under the guise of Evangelos Averof. “The question is how do we implement this provision for voluntary – I repeat the voluntary one so that there is no misunderstanding in it – women’s recruitment. And in the next few weeks we will present you with the leadership of the Armed Forces an initial thought. How we can best take advantage of our country’s human capital, not only at the level of our staff, but also at the level of voluntary enlistment. Starting with cadet officers with specific specialties, who will serve for a period of time and slowly moving on to wider sections of the female population, who would like to wear this honest, but also very beautiful uniform you wear. And to have, in my opinion, the amazing experience of serving the Armed Forces of our country,” concluded Mr.
