GREEKS AND ARMENIANS PRESS FOR ANSWERS FROM ROMNEY AND OBAMA

The ANCA and American Hellenic Institute Ask Candidates to Outline their Principles, Priorities and Policies on Greek and Armenian Issues

WASHINGTON, DC - Two of the leading Greek and Armenian American advocacy organizations, representing nearly five million citizens from across the United States, today jointly called upon President Barack Obama and former Massachusetts Governor Romney to end their respective campaigns' silence on Armenian and Greek issues, by issuing public statements outlining their views

"As two of the leading Greek and Armenian American advocacy organizations, we join together today in calling upon President Obama and Governor Romney to publicly present the specific principles, priorities, and policies that would guide their Administration's actions on issues of special concern to our nation's nearly 5 million citizens of Greek and Armenian heritage," said American Hellenic Institute President Nick Larigakis and Armenian National Committee of America Executive Director Aram Hamparian.

Both the American Hellenic Institute (AHI) and the Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA) have, separately, written to both the Obama-Biden and the Romney-Ryan presidential campaigns, providing them with candidate questionnaires, and inviting them to share their views with voters, many living in swing states, that may prove decisive in what is widely expected to be a close electoral contest.

The Presidential Candidate Questionnaires can be viewed at:

Two recently launched Facebook pages reflect and reinforce the enduring bonds between the Armenian and Greek nations:

1) The Armenian Hellenic Alliance, dedicated to promoting and protecting the shared views, values, issues and interests of these two proud and ancient peoples.

2) Orthodox Christian Voters of America, which seeks to unite America's more than 10 million voters with roots in Orthodox Christian communities into a national electoral constituency of shared values and vision.
