Eleftherio-Kordelio (Greek: Ελευθέριο-Κορδελιό) is a suburb of the Thessaloniki Urban Area and was a former municipality of the peripheral unit of Thessaloniki, Greece. Since the 2011 local government reform it is part of the municipality Kordelio-Evosmos, of which it is a municipal unit.[1] It gained its present form in 1982, after the union of the then municipalities of Eleftheria and Neo Kordelio. They were formed in 1924 by Greek refugees from the town of Kordelio on the west coast of Asia Minor[2]. In the Ottoman Empire the region and the small village that stood in the same area was known as Harman koy (Turkish: threshing place).

Eleftherio-Kordelio covers an area of 3.75 km² with around 21,630 inhabitants as of 2001. It's the stronghold of the nationalist LAOS Party that reached 10.25% of the municipal votes in the 2004 European Elections. The culture of the municipality has been influenced by the Sarakatsani, a tribe of Greek nomads that lived in several rural parts of the southern Balkans, who came to Eleftherio-Kordelio in the 1960s.
