Those Greek election results… June 17, 2012Posted by WorldbyStorm in European Politics, The Left.
That’s some set of exit polls that can be found. And they vary fairly widely too. The Guardian has a pretty useful rolling blog on it.
EDIT, and here from Gearóid a suggestion for another useful site.
I can’t read the outcome at all, and it’d be useful to know what the view inside Greece is. But, one way or another SYRIZA has done remarkably well all things considered and looks set to be a vital element of the Greek politics from here on in (assuming it can retain coherence and the disparate nature of SYRIZA may tell against it heavily from here on in). PASOK’s Fianna Fáil-like descent (albeit worse, going into the low teens) continues apace. KKE may slightly improved its position on last time.
Golden Dawn appears to have held onto much of its vote. Democratic Left likewise.
With left alternatives to both left and right of SYRIZA it’s difficult to see how it could have shifted much leftward, or indeed rightward in order to pick up support. But there’s a further interesting dynamic here in the way that New Democracy has consolidated its vote.
