Winners and Losers

Compared to Parliamentary Elections June 2012:

SYR -0.33% ND – 6.93%  PASOK/ELIA – 4.95%  GoldenDawn +2.47 KKE +1.5% INDEPGREEKS -4.60% DEMLEFT -5.03% LAOS +1.60

SYRIZA: historic win with 3.7% difference towards  Nea Dimokratia

Nea Dimokratia and PASOK (ELIA): losses for coalition government parties are added together on two-digits.

However, right after the exit polls on Sunday, both ND and PASOK challenged the logic of common sense. Both coalition government parties were quick to claim that the result do not put the government stability at risk and that SYRIZA is not the winner as it received less votes than in the parliamentary elections.

ELIA did better than in public opinion polls, maybe also due to Venizelos’ threat to withdraw from the government and trigger early elections.

Golden Dawn: increased its rates and votes despite the fact that many MPs are in custody awaiting trial for establishing a criminal organization.

Nationalist INDEPENDENT GREEKS suffered immense losses, but the real electoral Waterloo came for former Samaras’ coalition partner Democratic Left.

Newly established To Potami managed to receive a respectful rate despite the fact that the party’s positions were unclear.

In Municipality and regional elections Nea Dimokratia and PASOK did better, with ND winning 11 out of 13 regions.

In Greece’s biggest region Attica, SYRIZA candidate Rena Dourou prevailed with 50.83% against Yiannis Sgouros (49.17%) who was supported by PASOK And ND.
