Greece is preparing for the elections that will be held on May 21. In public opinion polls, the New Democracy Party, led by Prime Minister Mitsotakis, appears to be leading. However, since it is not expected to get enough votes, it is believed that the elections will go to the second round.
People in Greece go to the polls on May 21.
According to opinion polls and election polls, the New Democracy Party, led by Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, is leading.
Opinion polls showed that the ruling party, New Democracy, lost votes after the accident on February 28, when a passenger train and a freight train collided in the city of Larissa, killing 57 people.
However, recent polls reveal that the gap between Mitsotakis’ party and the main opposition Syriza is widening as the election period approaches.
The gap between New Democracy and Syriza, led by the main opposition leader and former prime minister Alexis Tsipras, is 7 percent, according to the latest Europe Effects poll.
The ruling New Democracy Party won 35.6% of the vote. Syriza, 28.6 percent.
The poll showed that PASOK ranks third with 10.8% of the vote.
The Greek Nationalist Party, which receives 3.3 percent of the vote and is affiliated with the racist Golden Dawn party, cannot participate in the elections due to a judicial ban.
According to the system in Greece, a party must receive at least 45 percent of the vote to form a self-contained government.
If neither party can obtain a quorum, the ballot box will be held again on July 2.
In the second round of elections, the system of “absolute majority” will work. The party that gets the largest number of votes in this round will also form the government.
