Lt-Gen Constantine Ginis new Chief of Army General Staff

Lt.-Gen. Constantine Ginis was named Wednesday as Greece’s new Chief of the Army General Staff (GES) by the Government Council for Foreign Affairs and Defence (KYSEA), during a scheduled morning meeting chaired by prime minister Antonis Samaras.
Ginis, up to now commander of the First Army Corps and Army General Inspector, and the second in the line of hierarchy in the Army, replaces Lt.-Gen Constantine Ziazias, who tendered his resignation as GES chief earlier on Wednesday.

“With respect for the personnel I had the honor of commanding for nine months”, Ziazias submitted his resignation “for reasons of ethics and dignity, both mine and the Army’s,” a GES announcement said.
