OSCE, Greece Parliamentary Elections October 2019, ODIHR Needs Assessment Mission Report, 10-12 April 2019, accessed 10 July 2019

“The election administration is decentralized across several institutions. The Ministry of Interior (MoI) performs key logistical and administrative functions, including the compilation of voter lists, the provision of election materials to polling station committees (PSCs) and ballots to entitled political parties, and the announcement of results. The Supreme Court is responsible for the registration of contestants and the appointment of chairpersons and members of some 22,000 PSCs. The ad hoc Supreme Electoral Court, chaired by the president of the Supreme Court, certifies the final election results. The law further envisages an inter-party working committee, comprised of one representative of each parliamentary party or coalition, to be established in election years. This committee has no regulatory authority but provides a forum for cross-party dialogue and consultations with institutions on campaign regulations.”
