A controversial political nomination

"The regional elections to be held in October will have an air of controversy about them," writes Andreas Kovaios. "The provocative decision of the socialist opposition leader, Georges Papandréou, to nominate Kara Hasan Gulbeyaz, a candidate from the Greek Muslim Pomak minority, rattled the Greek political class by raising questions of identity. The conservative prefect of Salonika, Panagiotis Psomiadis, has demanded that the candidate recognise the genocide of the Pontics [a Greek minority from the Black Sea] and the Armenians by Mustapha Kemal's army. ... The 28-year-old candidate wants people to stop asking her whether she is Greek, but she realises the debate is only just beginning."
