In what is turning out to be a clash between the Greek Orthodox church and the ruling PASOK party leading cleric Bishop Anthimos has been quoted as saying that he and the church will do everything in their power to prevent left of centre candidate Yiannis Boutaris from becoming mayor of Greece's second largest city, Thessaloniki. According to The Makedonia newspaper the bishop said that Boutaris, "will never become mayor as long as I live".
