With the official elections campaign to have started since yesterday, conservative Nea Dimocratia and left-wing SYRIZA deliver a head-to-head battle to secure the “championship” in the June-17 elections. Even though the parties have not clearly announced their programmes and their campaign currently focuses on populist slogans against each other.
At the same time, the two big parties are working out alliances with smaller parties that have not managed to pass the 3% threshold during May-6 elections.
ND tries to form the so-called “pro-Europe right front” and negotiates with neo-liberal Democratic Alliance, while it tries at the same time to pull candidates form far-right LAOS.
SYRIZA’s alliance with Social Agreement (PASOK breakaway) is considered certain, while there are allegedly talks with Eco-Greens and anti-bailout left ANTARSYA.
The finalized alliances and the economic programmes are expected to play an important role in the ifluence of voters.
Socialist PASOK finds each itself constantly at the third position and does not achieve more than maximum 15 percent.
Communist KKE seems to ‘pay the price’ for its unwillingness to cooperate to form a coalition government.
