With an increase in voter turnout, the initial European Election results in Greece show the Coalition of the Radical Left (SYRIZA) ahead of the Nea Dimokratia (ND) conservatives with an up to 4% margin.
Browse the table below for real time European, Municipal and Regional Election results as votes are still being counted by the Greek Ministry of Interior.
Initial results from exit polls for the European Election on May 25 showed that Greeks gave the major opposition Coalition of the Radical Left (SYRIZA) a margin of up to 3 percent in European Parliament elections, but likely not the knockout blow needed to force early elections.
The first results – which in the first round of local elections on May 18 were wrong – gave SYRIZA the edge over the ruling New Democracy Conservatives of Greece ‘s Prime Minister Antonis Samaras and his coalition partner the PASOK Socialists in the Battle for Brussels.
If the results hold up it would be a historic moment in Greece with a far-left party triumphing, albeit in a contest to send the country’s representatives, with the allocation based on the findings of the parties.
