Greece’s Minister of Interior, Niki Kerameus, and the Ambassador of Australia in Greece, Alison Duncan, met on Tuesday.

According to The Greek Herald’s sources, during the meeting the Minister referred to the emblematic initiative of the Greek Government to establish postal voting for Greeks abroad. The voting reform is a big and essential step to strengthen the participation in the electoral process of Greeks abroad.

Minister Kerameus and Ambassador Duncan both also agreed to explore further ways of cooperation between Greece and Australia.

After the meeting, Ambassador Duncan expressed her satisfaction with the constructive meeting in a social media post.

“Great to meet the Minister of Interior Niki Kerameus to discuss important bilateral issues, including Greece’s aim to facilitate voting in the upcoming European elections for the Greek diaspora in Australia,” she wrote.

In her recent exclusive statement to The Greek Herald, Minister Kerameus said, “the establishment of the postal vote meets the requirements of a modern society. Above all, the introduction of postal voting broadens and deepens democracy. As the Ministry of Interior, we will not stop trying to constantly facilitate the citizen in the exercise of his very important right – the right to vote.”
