Voting has begun in the second round of the internal party elections for the leader of SYRIZA. Alexis Tsipras resigned after losing the parliamentary elections.
Today, all citizens over the age of 15 who are sympathizers or members of the party have the right to vote.
Voting takes place in 570 polling stations, and it is possible to vote electronically from abroad.
Two candidates remained in the runoff – the former Minister of Labor Efi Ahtsioglu and the businessman Stefanos Kaselakis, who returned from abroad and ran a brilliant election campaign for a month. He also won the first round of voting.
Kaselakis has attracted the attention of the political scene, with the media describing him as “tall, young, energetic and the first homosexual politician on the Greek political scene. “He does not have a series of failures behind him and does not carry the burden of the mistakes of the SYRIZA administration. According to political analysts, Kaselakis is trying to create a democratic party, like America, “where we will be centrist in some ways and very progressive in others,” he said in a campaign speech.
Kaselakis is expected to win the Greek vote today.
