December 8, 2023

ATHENS – Interior Minister Niki Kerameus on Friday announced the immediate start of a process of consultation with the parliamentary party representatives on the postal vote following her return from Paris, while speaking to the public broadcaster ERT.

Kerameus, who is chairing OECD’s Global Strategy Group meeting in Paris, referred to the Greek Diaspora’s keen interest in the specific initiative.

She noted that the consultation will start with main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance on Monday, December 11.

Asked about the possibility of the postal vote being implemented in the parliamentary elections as well, she said that the specific intiative exclusively concerns the European elections and referenda, noting that there is plenty of time to discuss the specific measure and its implementation and in other elections.

Finally, referring to the Global Strategy Group, Kerameus said that this year’s agenda includes crucial international issues, such as geopolitical developments, the climate crisis and the demographic problem.
