Poll: Greek Diaspora Vote - YES or NO?

Postal voting has been  around for many years in many countries all over the world which allow their citizens living abroad to have a say in their home country's elections, both on a local and a national level.  

In Greece this is not allowed and for years Greeks living abroad have been asking for the right to vote from abroad in Greece's National Elections, in order to avoid having to return to Greece to do so.

After much coming and going on the subject, the issue seems to have been decided and legislation to allow this is being drafted.

We started this poll in 2017 when the SYRIZANEL coalition first started discussions on this . 

What do you think?
