Where will the two presidential candidates vote?
Efi Ahtsioglou will exercise her right to vote in Egaleo, in the electoral section of the Egaleo Town Hall, Iera Odos 364, at 11:00.
Stefanos Kasselakis will exercise his right to vote in Nea Smyrni, at the polling station of the GALAXY Cultural Center, Pl. Nea Smyrni, at 12.00.
The president of K.O. of SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance, Sokratis Famellos, on Sunday September 24, at 12:00 noon, will visit the offices of the Local Organization of SYRIZA-PS Thermi (Tavaki 8, Thermi) where he will exercise his right to vote in the internal party elections procedures for the party’s presidential election.
Curtain in a climate of polarization
Amid controversies and polarization, however, the pre-election curtain falls with both candidates focusing on attracting more voters in the last day.
Efi Ahtsioglou addressed the members of the party at noon, inviting them to participate in the process with a new video on her official Facebook account.
In particular, Ms. Ahtsioglou said: Why are we voting tomorrow? We’ve heard a lot. But things are simple: Tomorrow we vote for the official opposition leader. And what will determine our decision? Is it social media influence? Is the experience in the arena of politics? Is it the smile? Are the passwords? Possibly all of this matters. But I want to be honest. Above all, it is the content of the policy,” he noted, among other things.
Accordingly, Stefanos Kasselakis also asked for the support of all members regardless of what they voted for in the ballot box. “Today I am not only talking to you who supported me. I’m talking to all of you, the 150,000, who queued at the polls, who resurrected SYRIZA – whatever you voted for in the first round. I am asking you now to be together. Because the new President of SYRIZA needs everyone’s strength. Because the new President of SYRIZA will be President of all. Not for post-politics, but for post-politics. After the Right of Kyriakos Mitsotakis. Then, for a State that will not leave the citizen alone. Then, for a Greece that you will feel proud to live in,” he wrote, among other things.
Today I am not only talking to you who supported me. I am talking to the 150,000 who resurrected SYRIZA.
I am asking you now to be together.
Because the new President needs everyone’s strength.
Because he will be President of all.
