ND MPs ask for the placement of Alexander the Great statue

They submitted a query on why the city has delayed the placement of the statue

Twenty-four MPs of New Democracy party (ND) submitted a query to the Interior Minister and Culture Minister asking for the placement of a statue of Alexander the Great in Athens.

The MPs said that “in 1993 the Culture Ministry purchased the bronze statue of the commander, work of the late sculptor Yiannis Pappas and granted it to the municipality of Athens in order to place it in a prominent spot”.

However, “twenty one years later, the city of Athens has not found a suitable spot to place the statue, something which can only cause grief and anger,” the MPs said and asked for the necessary actions to be taken so that the statue would be placed in Athens.
