Expatriate vote to Parliament Plenary Session
Συντάχθηκε απο τον/την Μπάμπης Παπαδάκης   
Prime Minister Kostas Karamanlis yesterday met with Interior Minister Prokopis Pavlopoulos who briefed him on the law granting absentee voting rights to Greeks living abroad that is to be submitted to the House within the week.
After the meeting, Pavlopoulos noted that the relevant provision had been voted into the Constitution with the Constitutional revision of 2001 but, "unfortunately, there had been no initiative on the part of PASOK, as government, nor has there been consensus by PASOK as the main opposition party".
Pavlopoulos noted that PASOK's denial for consensus on the issue deprived Greeks outside the country of the ability to vote from their place of residence.
