  1. ND 27.9%
  2. SYRIZA 14.8%
  3. PASOK 12.9%.

On the other hand, far-right parties significantly increased their share of the vote, even if one of them, the Spartans were excluded form the EU elections.

Nationalist Greek Solution is currently at 9.6%. ultra-religious Niki was at 4.4% and nationalist/patriotic Voice of Reason at 3.05%.

Communist Party KKE is at 9.4% , while SYRIZA dissidents New Left receives below the 3% threshold.

In these results, the postal votes have not been incorporated.

Voting participation reached a “historic low level” and is estimated at 40.40%
