    [02] Overseas Vote Draft-bill in the Parliament

    Draft-bill providing for overseas vote has been tabled to the Parliament. It requires 2/3 majority voting to be passed. Interior Minister Prokopis Pavlopoulos said that political parties' objections could not deprive Greeks abroad from their self-evident right to participate in the country's political life.

    Draft-bill on overseas vote allows Greeks living or serving in a Greek authority abroad to exercise their voting right. Overseas voters can vote political parties or coalitions of political parties which have drawn state lists. The draft-bill also provides that state lists must include at least three candidates who have lived abroad for ten years. According to Constitution article # 151, the draft-bill must be voted by a 2/3 Parliament majority or 200 deputies to be ratified. Government spokesman Evangelos Antonaros expressed hope that opposition parties and particularly the main opposition party PASOK would not insist on its negative position and deprive Greeks abroad from their right of voting in the countries they live and oblige them to travel in order to exercise their voting rights.

    In response to whether the government has taken into consideration proposals by opposition parties, Mr. Antonaros stressed that an extensive dialogue with political sectors and representatives of Greeks abroad has preceded.
