Greece

Parliamentary elections were held in Greece on 25 September 1932.[1] All 254 seats in the Lower House of the Greek Parliament, the Vouli, were elected, as well as one-third of the seats in the Senate. The outcome was an ambivalent result for the two biggest parties, the Liberal Party of Eleftherios Venizelos and the People's Party. The People's Party received a plurality of votes in the Lower House elections, but won fewer seats than the Liberal Party.[2] The Liberals also won the most seats in the Senate.

These were the last elections for the Senate, as it was abolished in 1935.
