Increased interest in covering the ballots for the election of the new President of the Hellenic Republic have shown numerous (according to some reports more than 15) foreign news agencies, television stations and newspapers, who have already sent their letters to the Greek Parliament Press Office, requesting approval of their accreditation.
In addition, it became known that there are many requests for satellite connection with the Greek Parliament’s television network in view of tomorrow’s first – out of three – presidential ballot.
At the same time, there is intense interest expressed by foreign embassies to be represented and watch the vote, while the parties represented in Parliament will be those who will allocate a specific number of calls to ordinary citizens.
It should be noted that the Greek Parliament authorities are ready to offer their services to those covering the event and all its employees are on alert and all leave permits have been revoked. On alert is also the police, which will impose increased security measures both inside and outside the Parliament in Athens, Greece.
