Plenty of first-time voters, but will they show up?

A law passed by the previous leftist-led government giving the vote to people whose 17th birthday falls within the calendar year of an election, a year earlier than previously, means that people as young as 16 years and 5 months will be eligible to cast ballots. It also means a larger than usual cohort of new voters.

State services below par

Ministries, courts and town planning offices continue to cause the greatest inconveniences to businesses when dealing with the state, with the level of satisfaction below 10%, according to the latest survey conducted by MRB on behalf of the Hellenic Federation of Enterprises (SEV). Those surveyed also rued the lack of any substantial improvement in 2020 compared to 2019.
