State Funding for Party Election Campaigns Announced

election-resultsThe sum of 1,766,000 euros and the additional amount of 353,200 euros in campaign funding will be divided among the parties that elected MPs in the last general elections and MEPs to the European Parliament, respectively. The relevant act was signed on Tuesday by caretaker Interior Minister Antonis Manitakis.
Specifically, this act stipulates that the parties elected to the Hellenic Parliament will receive 50% of the total party funding available for holding this election, divided based on their electoral strength as follows:
SYRIZA 702,225.62
NEW DEMOCRACY 537,365.45
TO POTAMI 116,910.77
COMMUNIST PARTY OF GREECE (KKE) 105,737.58
INDEPENDENT GREEKS 91,822.68
PASOK – 90,505.14
The parties with MEPs in the European Parliament will then receive 10% of the same sum, as follows:
SYRIZA 113,199.14
NEW DEMOCRACY 96,840.56
ELIA (PASOK-LED COALITION) 34,182.66
TO POTAMI 28,154.82
COMMUNIST PARTY OF GREECE (KKE) 26,044.59
INDEPENDENT GREEKS 14,749.28
The sums corresponding to the far-right Golden Dawn party (121,432.76 euros and 40,028.95 euros, respectively) will be withheld due to a suspension of the party’s state funding imposed by Parliament. They will be paid to the party without interest in the event that there is a final court decision finding the MPs of the party now facing trial not guilty.
