المحافظون يفوزون في الانتخابات اليونانية

By Jordi Bou

May 22, 2023 - حقق رئيس الوزراء من يمين الوسط كيرياكوس ميتسوتاكيس في اليونان فوزاً انتخابياً كبيراً، حيث أجرى تصويتاً ثانياً في الصيف قد يمنح حزبه أغلبية مطلقة في البرلمان.

With most votes counted, Mitsotakis’s New Democracy took a commanding lead of 40.8%.

His centre-left rival Alexis Tsipras congratulated him, with his Syriza party set for a poor result of 20.1%.

Greece’s interior ministry projected New Democracy could win 146 seats in parliament, five short of an absolute majority.

Mitsotakis is likely to reject forming a coalition in favour of a second election that gives the winning party up to 50 bonus seats.

This was the first election in Greece since its economy ceased being under the strict supervision of international leaders, who had provided financial relief for the country during its nearly decade-long financial crisis.
