Organiser - Invited Session 1
The Hellenic Parliament is the supreme democratic institution of Greece that represents the citizens through an elected body of 300 Members of Parliament. The Plenum decides by an absolute majority of the MPs who are present. The Greek Constitution and the Parliament’s Standing Orders provides for the cases that require special or qualified majority voting. The legislative work, namely voting of Bills and Law Proposals and the exercise of parliamentary control over the Government, are the core Parliament activities. In recent years, the Hellenic Parliament has introduced several innovations in its working practices. It is actively cooperating with the European Parliament and its peers in the European Union on the digital governance regime and its applications within representative institutions.
