By Andriana Simos and Ilias Karagiannis.

Greece’s Alternate Interior Minister, Theodoros Livanios, will be in Australia from March 21 this year to meet with the Greek communities in Melbourne and Sydney.

In an exclusive statement to The Greek Herald, Mr Livanios said his visit has a dual purpose of representing the Greek government at Greek Independence Day celebrations in Sydney, and also spreading the news on postal voting for the Greek diaspora.

“Being the first time visiting Australia, I am thrilled and looking forward to meeting with the Greek Australian community, one of the largest groups of the global Greek diaspora…” Mr Livanios said in his statement.

The Minister also said that during his visit, he wants to hear from the Greeks in Australia how bonds between Greece and the diaspora can be strengthened.

“Bearing in mind that Greeks all over the world, especially the ones who live thousand miles away from the motherland, like you, face a particular difficulty when willing to vote, we recently enacted the law allowing postal voting for the European elections as well as the referendums. We are therefore happy to share with the Greek Australians details on how to register in the epistoliki.ypes.gov.gr platform to vote at the forthcoming European elections in June,” Mr Livanios said.

“Of course, hearing back from all of you about ways that could facilitate and strengthen the bonds between Greece and the Greek diaspora is, and has always been, a main concern for our government.”

The 47-year-old politician will visit Melbourne from March 21 – 23 and Sydney from March 24 – 27.
