Are Cypriots allowed to vote in Greece's national elections?

As 'Greeks' of Cyprus, surely this should be permissible. :?

Sticky innit?

Ok, so the 'Greeks' of Cyprus:

Don't possess Greek passports.
Can't vote in Greek elections.
Can't represent Greece officially in sports or anything unless they change nationalities.

Geez... what kind of proud Greeks are these?

I think if you apply for their citizenship then they may grant it!

I did and it was OK but I didn't go through the most unhelpful Australian Consulates! 8)

Never voted though and don't intend on doing so because I don't live there.

That makes me a Greek and you blokes Xenoi! :lol:

That's because your mates, the Angloamericunts, didn't allow us to unite with Greece in 1959. :evil:

Now, bugger off, you little traitor! :twisted:

Greek city states were always independent from each other. Such elections, whether in Cyprus or Greece, are in keeping with the "local" nature of governance. Main difference is that foreigners have tried to destroy that sense of oneness of our culture and history with their divisive policies.

Back to the point of what else Greece gives us for free; university places.
