Greek Conservatives take charge in snap election

July 8, 2019 -- Greece’s opposition conservatives returned to power with a landslide victory in snap elections on Sunday, unseating the radical-left Syriza party of Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras with pledges to boost growth and create jobs.

The centre-right New Democracy, led by Kyriakos Mitsotakis, is set to win about 39.6 per cent of the vote, according to official estimates from the interior ministry, with most of the ballots counted. Syriza will win about 31.6 per cent of the vote. This would mean New Democracy would have 158 seats in the 300-seat parliament -- enough to form a single-party government.

“I am committed to fewer taxes, many investments, for good and new jobs, and growth which will bring better salaries and higher pensions in an efficient state,” Mitsotakis said in a televised address.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era, coming soon…

And it will be worth the wait! The Graphic News website is undergoing a complete redesign. The new site will not only see improvements in terms of speed and user experience, but will also include many new features. For example, existing subscribers will be able to manage their accounts online via a group dashboard, and add selected graphics to lists for project planning (and which can be shared across the group).

Existing users will need to register individually - we’ll be sending instructions to our main contacts at each group and will be on hand to help you through the process, which we hope will be seamless!
