ATHENS – The Council of State, Greece’s Supreme Administrative Court, will review the Presidential decree to adjust the distribution of parliamentary seats following the results of the 2021 national census.
The decree was drafted the Interior Ministry’s Directorate of Elections, within a timetable set by Minister Makis Voridis.
Based on the latest census-based distributions, the electoral region of Eastern Attica wins two seats, while the regions of the North, West and South sectors of Athens, gain one extra seat each. The First Electoral District of Thessaloniki also gains one seat.
Losing a seat each are the regions of the First Electoral Districts of Athens and Piraeus, and those of Arta, Kozani, Magnisia, Serres, Fthiotida, Thesprotia, and Kastoria. The latter two, Thesprotia and Kastoria, will become single-seat districts.
Another three seats are removed from regional seats and added to the state deputy list, as they will represent Greeks living abroad.
