Greece Elections: Conservatives led by Prime Minister Mitsotakis achieve a landslide victory


Greece’s ruling conservative New Democracy party, led by the Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, won a landslide victory in the Greek general elections held on Sunday, achieving better results than the results it achieved in the 2019 elections, after Counting about half of the votes cast.

The New Democracy Party won about 41% of the vote, compared to 39.9% in the previous elections.

The New Democracy Party may seek a partner to form a coalition government, but Mitsotakis may prefer holding new elections in July under a different system that would allow his party to rule the country alone.

The left-wing Syriza party, to which former Prime Minister Alexi Tsipras belongs, lost 10% of the vote to 20%, but remains the largest opposition party.

The Social Democratic PASOK party came in third place, with about 12% of the vote, compared to 8.1% in 2019.

The Communist Party won 6.8% of the vote, followed by the right-wing populist Greek Solution Party, with 4.5%, to secure entry to Parliament after exceeding the minimum vote of 3%.

The turnout was relatively low, amounting to 58%, and the number of people who enjoy the right to vote is about 9.8 million.
