Brown, Stuart, (2019), “Greek elections: The view from across Europe“, July
Greece held legislative elections on 7 July. The preliminary results indicated New Democracy had won a majority of seats, with Syriza in second place. El País describes the result as the “end of a cycle” for Greece, with the four years of Syriza in government coming to an end and the mainstream centre-right winning a majority “worthy of another era”. The Financial Times states that the victory for New Democracy and the party’s leader, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, raises “hopes of a return to growth and stability in a country rocked by years of recession and three international bailouts”.
