I never tire of these Greek governmental swearings-in. This is the fourth one in eight months so my cup runneth over this year…
I love the men in beards, the gold robes, the gold bible, the incense, the bells….great fun!
As an interesting extra variant this time, the new PM, it seemed, had to stand for ages with the men in gold/beards to wait for the President to arrive.
The President eventually arrives at 4’36″.
This is just a one-man swearing in though. We can still look forward with relish to the full governmental swearing in soon. They’re great. Everyone has to touch each other in a sort of mass human chain and then a few people at the front put their hands on the bible – so they’re all sort of connected somehow via flesh to the bible. Sort of a mass tag wrestling match. It’s great fun!Tweet
