Greek opposition party leader Evangelos Meimarakis was warned in advance that there were problems with the party’s election software, but failed to act, it has emerged.
A challenger Kyriakos Mitsotakis sent him a letter on November 11 noting shortfalls in preparations for the vote.
The IT company responsible for carrying out the vote did not even have a website.
Amid fears of an attempt to rig the vote, controlled opposition politician Meimarakis stepped down a head of New Democracy.
The fiasco comes as a commentator in Kathimerini warns that Greece is close to becoming a failed state.
