Elections in Greece not before April, say gov’t sources

Government sources ruled out general parliamentary elections before April this year.

“The prime minister remains steadfast to his commitment that elections will be held at the end of his four-year term. He will decide what the appropriate date is after April,” the sources told media after a meeting at Maximos Mansion chaired by Kyriakos Mitsotakis.

Elections, which are otherwise scheduled for June, will be fought under proportional representation, which means that no party will win an overall majority in the first round, notes daily kathimerini.

A second ballot will follow, under a new law passed by ruling New Democracy, which will give the top voting-getting party a large number of bonus members of Parliament.

According to scenarios circulating by media in the country, most possible elections dates are on a Sunday in the first half of April.
