Supreme Court approves the candidature of 32 parties for the May 6 elections but bans four

A total of 32 parties, coalitions and individual candidates will contest the May 6 general election, following their approval by the Supreme Court (Areios Pagos) on Thursday.

The court banned four parties from taking part: National Hope, PAME in GESEEP [Π.Α.Μ.Ε. στο Γ.Ε.Σ.Ε.ΕΠ.], the Friends of Man, and Citizens Assembly–(Direct) Democracy in Practice.

It is understood that National Hope was prohibited under the electoral law from participating as it is a monarchist party.

The court also banned the one-man party Tyrannicides from contesting the election under that name, on the grounds that the title "demonstrated criminal intent". The party's only candidate, Athanasios Daskalopoulos, may run, however.
