One clear message coming out from the election results in Greece on Sunday is that more than 65% of the electorate rejected the austerity measures and any policies associated with this. Hard left party Syriza got more than 20% and other left wing parties put together another 20% the soft right ND party only managed to get 22% and Socialist PASOK managed to come third.
Discussions taking place yesterday between ND and others produced no results so it will seem probable that another election will have to take place sooner rather than later. The country is virtually held hostage by the main parties who are now obsessed with taking positions that would make them look more electable at the next election. This is unacceptable and irresponsible. A government of national unity is needed very soon!
