New Chief for National Intelligence Service

The new Greek Government decided yesterday to replace the head of the National Intelligence Service with Ambassador Kostas Bikas. The previous head of the organisation, Dimitris Papagelopoulos, was appointed by the previous conservative government just 3 months ago.

The question now is what will happen to the recent changes made by the previous conservative government to the leadership of the armed forces. The changes were made some months ago under heavy criticism as to their timing. The new Commanders, although technically a non-political posts, are seen as belonging to the conservative field. Typically they will serve in their current positions for two years.
