Will the government get enough votes to pass the bill on Greek expat vote?

Intense political fermentation procedures are activated by the bill of the Ministry of Interior to facilitate the voting of expatriates. The government is called upon to face the difficult constitutional equation and get a majority of at least 200 deputies to approve the proposed regulations. Based on the starting positions of the parties, the promoted provisions can so far count on 190 positive votes from New Democracy, Movement for Change and Greek Solution. This means that the positive vote of SYRIZA or the KKE is required - since the 9 deputies of MeRA25 are not enough to pass the threshold foreseen by the constitution.
