"We want the Greeks living abroad to finally be able to vote and for their vote to count in the overall result. To be able to elect representatives," Movement for Change (KINAL) leader Fofi Gennimata said in a statement after the conclusion of her meeting with Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Friday. The prime minister is currently having a series of meetings with opposition party leaders about granting Greek voters living outside the country the right to cast their vote from abroad.
Gennimata also noted that there must not be another lost opportunity and urged all political parties to assume their responsibilities in this matter.
Concluding, Gennimata said that she also spoke with Mitsotakis about escalating Turkish aggressiveness and the need for "national cohesion and a decisive stance at home," as well as the adoption of specific measures and decisions - right now, she emphasised - on the part of Greece's EU partners.
In this context she said that the Greek government must ask the European Council to adopt sanctions against Turkey and change the EU-Turkey Statement on the refugee and migration crisis.
