Greek diaspora representatives have requested the expansion of postal voting rights for national elections while speaking in a parliamentary committee.

The representatives were called on to express their views on upcoming legislation that will include mail-in voting rights for European Parliament elections, as well as national referendums, in a parliamentary committee that discussed the issue.

They praised the government's plans but said that this right should also include national elections by the next election cycle.

Calls were also made to digitize the voting process and allow voting via the internet in order to better represent Greek expatriates and members of the diaspora.

The bill will be brought to parliament for a vote next week.
