Greek PM Wins Most Votes But Needs New Ballot to Rule Alone

Greek PM
  • Sunday’s vote was the first using a new proportional system
  • The result means there will likely be another election

Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis is on the verge of securing the highest votes in Greece's upcoming general election on Sunday. However, probably, he will not attain the necessary majority to establish a government independently, thus increasing the likelihood of another election taking place in approximately one month.

Mitsotakis, representing the centre-right New Democracy party, has garnered over 40.8% of the votes, with nearly 90% of the ballots counted. This performance surpasses initial expectations. The leftist Syriza party, led by former Premier Alexis Tsipras, has received approximately 20% of the support.
