Constantine Mitsotakis


Age: 98

former conservative prime minister of Greece between 1990 to 1993 in a brief spell during 20 years dominated by his Socialist rivals who was remembered for fierce confrontations with Greece's liberal and socialist parties and early free-market reforms during a 60-year political career, who retired from active politics from 2004 but remained honorary chairman of the center-right New Democracy party, who was credited with starting unpopular financial reforms to loosen state control of the economy, which were quietly continued by later governments and improving relations with Turkey, but who was also often regarded as a divisive figure in a country struggling to escape its volatile political history.
