Greek communists receive 25,2% of votes

ATHENS, Greece – The two Greek communist parties, the Marxist-Leninist KKE and the Eurocommunist SYRIZA, have jointly won circa 22-28 percent of the votes according to exit polls. Neo-Nazi party Golden Dawn has won between 6-8 percent of votes.

The Eurocommunist SYRIZA has won between 15 and 18,5 percent of the votes, while the KKE somewhat disappointingly reached almost 7,5 to 10 percent of the votes.

The two ruling parties, who now have two thirds of parliament, have fallen to merely almost 40 percent of the votes jointly. The centre-right New Democracy has won between 17 and 20 percent of the votes (now 33,5 percent). While the now largest social capitalist PASOK has between 14 and 17 percent of the votes (now almost 44 percent).

UPDATE

The four communist parties KKE, ANTARSYA, SYRIZA, ΚΚΕ(μ-λ) jointly received 25,2%. Only the KKE and SYRIZA received enough votes to enter parliament. Other communist parties (such as the Trotskyist EEK, and anti-Russian Maoist conspiracy theorist party OAKKE) received less than 0,1 percent of the votes.
