Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis addressed the opening of the World Assembly of the World Council of Hellenes Abroad (SAE) in Thessaloniki yesterday.

The Council is set to elect a new leadership following the retirement of its president, Andrew Athens of the US.

Karamanlis told delegates that those Greeks living abroad who have retained their Greek citizenship will soon be able to vote in Greek National elections at Greek Embassies and Consulates in their country of residence. The number of eligible voters is estimated at 2 million.
