Postal vote introduced

Voters will be able to exercise their electoral rights by postal vote in the forthcoming European elections following the recent adoption of the relevant bill by the Ministry of Interior.

The link to the online platform through which voters can register is expected to be announced in the coming days and registration for the forthcoming European elections will start in early February.
