MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS 2010

The first round of the forthcoming municipal elections will be held on 14 November. Despite the extensive merger of smaller municipalities which has taken part across Greece as part of the recently enacted Kallikratis municipal reform legislation, which axed all municipalities of less than 10,000 inhabitants, Kythera (as an island) escaped unscathed; instead, it is now a joint municipality with Antikythera (previously a small, independent commune).

Citizens of the European Union as well as most categories of ethnic Greeks who are registered residents will be able to vote, but they must register with the municipality in Chora before the end of June (last possible day is 30 June). Given the possible bureaucratic problems, interested parties are advised to do so as soon as possible!

More information will apparently be available on the Interior Ministry's website, www.ypes.gr.
