  • [01] Non-Greeks cannot vote in local polls, Cos finds

    ANA-MPA - The Council of State, Greece's supreme administrative court, on Wednesday judged that a law allowing non-Greeks to vote but also run for office in local government elections is unconstitutional. It also rejected sections of the 2010 law that 'naturalised' non-Greeks that are permanently resident in the country.

    The court found that based on the Constitution only Greek citizens had the right to run for office or vote in prefecture and municipal elections, barring all foreigners, and that the law could not apply unless the relevant article of the Constitution was amended.

    The case has now been referred to the CoS plenum for a final decision.
