Greek Emigrants Abroad

Voting abroad

Opposition parties PASOK, the Coalition of the Radical Left (SYRIZA) and the Communists late on Tuesday voted against a bill that would allow Greeks living abroad to vote in Greece’s general elections in their countries of residence. Parliament Speaker Dimitris Sioufas said there was no point in the bill being debated any further as the ruling conservatives need 200 of the 300 MPs in Parliament to vote in favor of it for it become law.
