Pope to meet Karolos Papoulias, President of Greece

2014-03-27

 

On Friday morning, Pope Francis will meet with the President of Greece, Karolos Papoulias

This Mediterranean country has a population of roughly 11 million people. Most of them are Orthodox Christians: 98 percent belong to the Greek Orthodox Church, whereas the 2 percent left are Muslims or from another confession.

Greece, officially called the Hellenic Republic, is a unitary parliamentary constitutional republic. Karolos Papoulias has been its president since 2005, and Antonis Samaras its Prime Minister since 2012.

During their meeting, Pope Francis and President Papoulias are expected to talk about the relations between the Holy See and the country, and also about the economic and political turmoil Greece faces since the beginning of the economic crisis in 2008.

In particular, they will probably focus on the high unemployment rates in Greece and Europe, specially among youth, and their political and social dangers.
