After collecting nearly two-thirds of the votes cast in Sunday’s parliamentary elections in Greece, the conservative New Democracy (ND) party is leading by a large margin over the left-wing Syriza group, the American News Agency (AP) reported on Sunday evening.

With more than 60 percent of the votes cast counted, ND led by incumbent Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis can get 41 percent of the vote, while Syriza, led by former Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras (2015-2019), cannot count on it. hardly. 20 percent of the vote.

Sunday’s election was the first parliamentary election in the Balkan country since the end of strict oversight of the Greek economy by international institutions. The country’s credit institutions have given a lifeline and financed the work of the Greek economy and state during the financial crisis of the past ten years.

The 48-year-old Tsipras led the country as prime minister for four years through a crisis that lasted nearly a decade, after which he was no longer able to regain his former broad social and political support.

Based on the expected results of the vote organized according to the new election law, it is almost certain that the NDP will not be able to form a government on its own in the 300-member Greek Parliament.

Mitsotakis is either looking for a coalition partner among the leaders of other political parties, or he could decide to hold snap elections in July under other electoral rules, which would allow the NDP to form a government on its own.
