Ifølge Reuters og BBC har den græske venstreorienterede premiereminister Tsipras meddelt at der bliver afholdt på baggrund af det dårlige resultat i dagens EU afstemning. Tsiprsas Syriza parti som ligger ude på venstrefløjen, fik et resultat der lå 8% point under oppositionspartiet.

ATHENS (Reuters) – Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said he would call snap elections following the defeat of his Syriza party in European Parliament elections.

Results showed his party trailing by up to nine points behind the opposition New Democracy party. Under normal circumstances, Tsipras’s mandate ends in October.

In a speech Tsipras said he would meet with the Greek President to discuss calling elections immediately after the conclusion of a second round of local Greek elections scheduled for next week.
