Greece’s PM to travel abroad to promote postal voting ahead of European elections


Greece’s Prime Minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis is preparing to travel abroad early this year to inform Greek diaspora communities about the postal vote in view of the upcoming European elections.

The bill for postal voting was put forward for public consultation weeks ago.

According to Newsbomb, sources expect Mitsotakis to visit Australia in the first few months of 2024 to brief the local Greek community on postal voting in the European elections.

Mitsotakis is also expected to be in the US on January 24, where he will visit both New York and Chicago, focusing especially on Greek expatriates.

Meetings have also been scheduled with American billionaire and JP Morgan Chase & Co. CEO, Jamie Dimon at an investment forum.

Later in February, Mitsotakis will attend the European Union Summit in Brussels, followed by a meeting with Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan at a business forum in Istanbul.

Against the background of the open challenges created by the war, Mitsotakis is expected to be in Munich as well for the Munich Security Conference.

Mitsotakis will also make another visit to Ankara, Turkey in April, following Erdogan’s request during the meeting of the High Cooperation Council between Greece and Turkey hosted in Athens on December 7.
