Many candidates for municipality and regional elections, especially those affiliated with Nea Dimokratia and PASOK had run for the elections as “Independent” and thus although Greeks knew their political affiliation.
In the second round of elections, next Sunday, it is expected that the parties of those candidates who will not run for the final round, will take clear position who they support in order to ideological influence voters and minimize win-chances for opponents.
Government spokesman Simos Kedikoglou said Monday, that Nea Dimokratia will support the two PASOK candidates for Athens municipality (Kaminis) and Attica region (Sgouros). ND will also support Michaloliakos in Piraeus municipality.
It will be very interesting to see whom the other parties will support in major municipalities and regions. Greek media puzzle about the voters of Golden Dawn: will they vote for PASOK candidates or for those of SYRIZA?
