The new bill lifting restrictions for Greek citizens living abroad to vote in elections was passed in Parliament on Tuesday.
A total of 208 of 300 deputies voted in favour of the bill, eight more than the constitutional requirement. To apply the legislation, over 200-MP votes were required (two thirds of the total MPs in Parliament).
The ruling New Democracy, PASOK-Movement for Change, Niki and Course of Freedom voted for the bill, according to Ekathimerini.
The opposition SYRIZA and the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) voted against it, while the far-right Spartans and Greek Solution parties abstained.
Some of the restrictions the bill abolishes include the length of stay in Greece (2 years during the last 35 years) before voting, and to have filed taxes during the current year or the previous one from the year of elections.
