ATHENS, GREECE – It is ERT’s right to choose the method of selection for the Eurovision Song Contest based on the European Broadcasting Union.
Though, the trend from the current government in Greece, to hire and appoint friends and family of the SYRIZA party to various public positions had no exception from the Eurovision Song Contest.
ERT’s President Mr Dionysis Tsaknis internally selected his friends to represent the country in Stockholm and it’s no secret; it was his personal choice!
Europond band will represent the country in the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest. The unknown band descent from Thessaloniki and the news came was a shock for the eurofans in the country since after 2001 it is the first time that an unknown artist represents Greece in Eurovision.
