Vradyni is a nationally published Greek newspaper. It has a liberal approach to the economy and is a traditional right-wing friendly newspaper in the country.

Political interactions[edit]

In 1973, Vradyni published an open letter by former Prime Minister Konstantinos Karamanlis calling for the military regime to restore power to King Constantine, with the result that the Greek judiciary issued warrants for the paper's publisher and editor.[1]

On 2 December 1974, the paper was shut down by the Greek military police for publishing an article critical of the then-government's lack of action on re-establishing parliamentary rule.[2]
