  • [01] Municipalities election in Greece

  • [01] Municipalities election in Greece

    13/10/2002 08:12:30

    Greeks goes to polls today to elect their mayors and prefects, following a tame pre-election campaign that focused on the problems of local societies, with a strong political undercurrent.

    Athens and Thessalonki candidates used the television debate style ''confrontations'' widely, more so than any other time in Greek elections' history, and on Friday concluded their appearances as law prescribes.

    This will be the first of a possible two Sundays of elections, as many municipalities and prefectures will fail to give the necessary 50 per cent plus one vote to the winning candidate, thus forcing a runoff.

    On Friday morning, the ministry of interior conducted a general test of its polling procedures, to verify the ability of the mechanism set up to collect and publish the results of the election from all over the country.

    An all-party committee will be present to verify the results of the process, during the day and until late evening when the final tabulations are expected to be concluded.
