With a fragmented political landscape and party headquarters which are frantically trying to attract bright and spotless candidates in their lists, known singers, entertainers, executives, models and many more... are getting ready to jump into the battle of the local elections.

Some of these have shown that they have had... a guiding star in their professional career. It remains to be seen whether it will accompany them during their political career.

Every day, various names are added to the potential participants in local elections, such as Ilias Psinakis, Noni Dounia, Stelios Dionisiou and Isavella Dara.

The Marathon Man

One of the celebrities who will try their luck at the elections is famous manager Ilias Psinakis.

Psinakis has recently announced his candidacy for Mayor of the Marathon region and aims to contribute to the development of the area. According to him, the assumption of mayoralty is a challenge.

He said that residents of Marathon, where he has been living in the last 18 years, call him "The Marathon Man" and he has invited them to participate in his vision for the municipality.

"We can change today’s image with a practical and innovative spirit of transparent governance and fantasy, with my knowledge and experience and the knowledge and experience of my staff, but mainly with the participation of our citizens, as well as with an optimistic plan which will unite all the inhabitants of the area and our allies in Greece and abroad. The only thing I would like to ask for is your participation and support," he said in his speech.

Vironas celebrities

These include singer Stelios Dionisiou and former model Isabella Dara.

This is journalist and TV presenter Dimitris Stamos, who has moved from the news to the problems of the local government and their solution.

According to Stamos, now he is a municipal councillor and secretary and is involved in local government.

LePa – for a mayor

Popular singer Lefteris Pantazis has also been nominated for the local elections. The singer said that he wanted to be independent and his name will be his only supporter.
