Greece's National Elections Results
June 29th, 2023 | 8:57 PM

We are 5 almost days after the second turn of Greece’s national elections and there are many things we can talk and comment about.
8 political parties joined the parliament with Nea Dimokratia being ready to serve for the second time in a row. Having reached a historical record (40,56%) against their major opposing party (Syriza with 17,83%), they seem ambitious for their second tenure and ready to continue from where they let it before the elections. 

The new government set a structure of 64 ministers and deputy ministers with an average age of 54 years old!
Important people with a great past like Nikos Dendias, Giorgos Gerapetritis, Kostas Chatzidakis, Miltiadis Varvitsiotis, and Konstantinos Kyranankis are staffing the new government, having already set the bar high.

Nea Dimokratia’s first tenure was way successful, making improvements and innovations in almost every field. Worth mentioning was surely their initiation to equip Greece’s national defense with new technologies and obviously increasing all investment indexes for the country, attracting foreign investors, by building a stronger trust relationship with Greek and foreign banks.


Another remarkable notice after the elections process was the fact that Syriza hit a low record making their general secretary resign earlier this morning. What will be the next day for Syriza, at the same time that PASOK started gaining confidence again with 11,84 of Greek people voting for them?Communists increased their voting percentage by 2,14%, getting a 7,69% now in comparison with their 5,55% back in 2019. 

Three newly founded political parties with vacillating supporters made it to the Parliament. We are talking about Spartiates (4,63%), Elliniki Lisi (4,44%), Niki (3,69%), and Plefsi Eleftherias (3,17%). Multiple rumors have been whispered about these four parties. Most of them share the same beliefs, some others are trying to make a statement. The notability they are getting last weeks is remarkable so we just have to wait and see how they will apply their theories and fit their doctrines in the parliament.

Summing up, we have to admit that the next 4 years will be rough as the government has to face many geopolitical challenges and issues in its Foreign Policy and more opponent parties refuting their domestic policy.
Many different opinions and judgments will be heard in the parliament so there will come a moment when cool and unruffled politicians will distinguish among others.
