According to the rationale of the decision, the premium does not contradict the constitutional principles of equality, meritocracy and rational organization of education
The Plenary Session of the Council of State decided that the awarding of distinguished athletes for their admission to higher education does not contradict the constitutional principles of equality, meritocracy and rational organization of education.
In particular, the Plenary Session of the Council of Ministers with its decision No. 1537/2023 (chairwoman Evangelia Nika and rapporteur Stavroula Ktistakis, State Councilor) ruled that the awarding of distinguished athletes for their admission to HEIs “does not contradict the constitutional principles of equality (article 4 par. 1 C), meritocracy and the career of each person according to his personal value (article 5 par. 1 C), as well as the rational organization of the education provided (article 16 C), in combination with the constitutional principle of measure/purpose proportionality”.
The court dealt with the case of a high school senior who took entrance exams in the 2020-2021 academic year under the new system of Law 4186/2013 for admission to the country’s Medical Schools.
