A seven-party Parliament has emerged from the 2015 elections, according to the results, as released by Singular Logic’s CEO Michael Cariotoglou.
The Greek interior ministry predicted earlier that SYRIZA would achieve 36.5 per cent of the vote and win 150 seats – one short of a majority. SYRIZA is with the lead but still at 36.08 per cent and 149 seats. Nevertheless, this is considered to be a landmark win of the left, as the party is set to change Greece’s political order.
“SYRIZA’s victory marked an end to the vicious cycle of austerity,” said Alexis Tsipras, the party’s leader slamming the ‘neo-liberal’ conditions set by the IMF, the European Commission and the European Central Bank.
“The verdict of the Greek people renders the troika a thing of the past for our common European framework.”
Golden Dawn and ‘To Potami’ are the two parties vying for third place returning 17 representatives to the Greek parliament. The extremist fascist party thriving on the back of anti-immigrant sentiment though, seems to be advancing despite 7 of the party’s 17 members of parliament being in jail or under house arrest.
Kinima on the other hand, George Papandreou’s new party, with less than 3 pct of the vote, will not be entering Parliament.
