PM Mitsotakis to Chair Meeting on Digital Civil Registry Plan

ATHENS — The plan for a digital civil registration system is to be presented during a video conference chaired by Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis to be held at 17:00 on Tuesday.

In essence, this is involves the digital transformation of municipal civil registries and other registry offices across the country, from which municipal registration and civil registration certificates will henceforth be issued digitally. The aim is to gradually eliminate the need for 6.6 million visits to municipalities and citizens' service centres.

The meeting will be attended by Interior Minister Takis Theodorikakos, Minister of Digital Governance Kyriakos Pierrakakis, State Minister Giorgos Gerapetritis, Deputy Interior Minister Thodoris Livanios, Deputy Minister to the prime minister, responsible for the coordination of the government's work, Akis Skertsos and the general secretary of the prime minister, Grigoris Dimitriadis.
