Supreme Court leaves President Anastasiades exposed on the White House Chief of Staff issue

The Supreme Court left President Nicos Anastasiades “completely exposed” after deciding on Wednesday that his request for the dismissal of the four White House Chiefs of Staff was unacceptable.

A budget revision last December dismissed four presidential aides, one of whom was a close relative of the president, and the issue was decided by the Supreme Court.

The president said he could not tolerate “unconstitutional and arbitrary actions to intervene in the government” of Congress.

The Supreme Court’s ruling on Wednesday means that the hiring of four employees will end at the end of the administration’s term, early next year.

The issue of the president’s four companions was raised before Congress by Auditor Odyssey Michaelides, who indicated that he should leave their position as soon as Anastasiades’ presidency ended.
