    [02] ND leader Mitsotakis: Investments will bring Greeks back to the country

    "It is a new community of new-migrants. A Greece outside Greece. I do not want to use that term. You are an important part of the country outside Greece ... We have to make use of this part of the Diaspora. Other countries have done so. We will try to do it with first step the voting right for the Greeks that live abroad" added Mitsotakis.
