...This is the first time in the history of Greece that a prime minister
has not taken the traditional oath and blessing of holy water from the
Archbishop of Greece. Immediately after the ceremony, Tsipras’s first act
as prime minster was to lay flowers at the National Resistance Memorial in
the Athens suburb of Kaisariani
