Former Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikos Kotzias proposes in his article in Kathimerini the creation of a "special institution for the election of the President of the Republic", consisting of a) all deputies; b) representatives of the regions with a number equal to one third of the number of delegates c) representatives of the municipalities with a number equal to 1/3 of the number of deputies and d) 101 citizens drawn from drawings on basis of "special Greek tradition and especially that of Athenian democracy".

According to this proposal, this body – consisting of 601 members – will elect the President of the Republic in the first round with 2/3 of its members, the second with the 3/5 and the third round with 50% + 1.

Mr Kotzias disagrees with the Government's proposal for the election of the PSC, ultimately by the electorate, if it fails to be elected by the House, even if some rounds of voting are preceded in Parliament. As he explains, if it's double-guessing & # 39; – as the proposal calls it – the political system & # 39; will lead to the paradox, not to say absurd, that the president who is not elected by the House has a greater prestige and a popular consensus than the one that he has chosen. has been elected ", which, according to Mr Kotzias, amounts to" a clear disregard for Parliament. "He speaks of a second" fundamental error "in the government's proposal that on this basis two legitimate principles will emerge, namely the elected Parliament. and at the same time elected president of the republic, and he emphasizes that when there was a similar phenomenon in Greece "there were negative developments at the expense of democracy".

He adds that "the long-term process of election of a president as proposed by the government gives ground and sufficient time for trade", while his concern that direct election of the People's Party to the People's Party may lead to "an autonomous pool, single person and without obligation "does not hide. accountability ".
