Greek citizens living abroad will once again have the opportunity to cast their votes one day prior to the national elections, following the precedent set in the previous election held last week.

In addition to the 22,857 individuals already registered on the special electoral rolls for overseas voters, about 7,000 more late applicants who missed the deadline for the first election will be eligible to vote in the upcoming election, bringing the total number of eligible voters abroad to approximately 30,000.

These late applicants, if they meet the necessary criteria, will be included in the new lists prepared by the Ministry of Interior.

The increase in the number of registered voters on the special overseas electoral rolls may lead to an increase in the number of polling stations.

A minimum of 40 voters is required to establish a polling station, and the surge in registrations may warrant the establishment of additional stations to accommodate the growing number of eligible voters.

In Australia, the New Democracy party secured 54.40 per cent of the votes, MeRA25 received 15.20 per cent, KKE got 9.60 per cent, and SYRIZA obtained 6.40 per cent.

To participate in the upcoming by-election, applicants whose registration was approved 12 days prior to the election announcement will be eligible to vote.

Regarding objections, Greek expatriates whose applications were rejected had the right to file an objection to be included in the electoral rolls until May 26 through the platform.

It is important to note that the request for deregistration or suspension applies to all individuals who have applied for registration on the overseas electoral rolls, regardless of whether they participated in the previous election or not.

What will the process be for those currently applying for registration on the foreign lists?

The procedure differs for Greek citizens who are now initiating the registration process for the overseas electoral rolls.

These individuals will not be eligible to participate in the June 25 elections.

According to Article 101 of Law 5003/2022 (A΄230), registrations or changes made less than 12 days prior to the election announcement will be included in the special foreign electoral rolls after the elections have taken place.

Therefore, their registration on the special overseas electoral rolls will be completed at a later date.
