What type of voting system does Greece use?

The political system in Greece is Parliamentary Republic, which means that they have a prime minister, a parliament and a president. The president is mostly typical. People vote in general elections for Prime minister and the parliament every four years and then the parliament votes for President every five. There are also the "local elections" which are every four years for mayors etc. The polotical party with the majority of the votes wins and has to present the cabinet to the president. the parliament votes and accepts it or not. If they don't (lack of majority) then the president doesn't confirm it and they have to redo it. I hope I am helping you a little

Ancient Greece

What time of day were tragedies performed in ancient Greece?

Considering that there were no electric lights or other ways to light a large stage or auditorium, all plays performed in ancient Greece were done in an outside theater during the day. Scenes meant to be performed at night where shown by several characters holding torches.

Addition:

The tragedies were performed as a trilogy - three consecutive sequential plays, followed by a satyr play followed by a comedy, so it was an all-day event.

What languages are spoken in Greece?

The official language of Greece is Greek.

This breaks up into many dialects of Greek with subtle changes in pronunciation and so a Macedonian Greek, a Greek from Athens or Epirus and a Greek from the island of Crete will all understand each other very easily. This has its origins back to the time of Alexander the Great who took the four strands of Greek language, Doric, Attic, Ionian and Aeolic and created a common language which was named koine meaning common. There is a minority group of speakers in the state of Thrace who speak Turkish and many Greeks on the borders of Greece also speak an idiom of their neighbors.
The Greeks spoke and still speak Greek.

There are different forms of Greek (like English has Old English, Middle English etc)

  • Mycenaean Greek, (16th to 11th centuries BC)
  • Ancient Greek, (c. 1000-330 BC)
  • Koine Greek , (c. 330 BC-330 AD)
  • Medieval Greek or Byzantine Greek, (330-1453 AD)
  • Modern Greek, (from 1453 AD)

the official language for Greece is Greek.
Modern Greek (Greek: Ελληνικά)
Myceneaen was the earliest dialect of the Greek language, dating back to before 1200 BC. The Greek language boasts the longest recorded history of any European language. Today, the people of Greece speak modern Greek, which came from the original ancient form of the language.

The gods made gifts for the people and whoever made the best gift would be patron. Poseidon made Salt water spring and Athena made the Olive tree. The men of the city liked the salt water spring, seeing how it would be a necessary stronghold in a war. But the women admired the olive tree and recognised its many uses around the home. There city had one more woman than the number of men, so the city was named Athens, and Athena and Poseidon have hated each other ever since.
