Greek PM says law to be passed in October 

A law will be passed by Parliament in October that will enable Greeks living abroad to vote in the country’s general elections, Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis said yesterday.

Karamanlis said that it was a “democratic duty” to allow Greeks all over the world to vote in the elections. Under the government’s proposals, Greeks abroad will be able to vote for candidates in the Greek electoral districts in which they are registered.

The proposed law, however, will not affect the next general election, which is due to take place by next March, as the legislation will come into effect at a later date.
