BREAKING: Syriza Places First in Greek Election, Exit Poll Shows

Via WSJ:
 Under Greece’s electoral law, the winning party is awarded 50 bonus seats in the country’s 300-member Parliament, a measure aimed at facilitating the stability of an elected government. But even with that bonus, Syriza doesn’t look as if it will have enough seats to form a government on its own. Polls show it might fall two to five seats short and would need to turn to another party to help govern, putting the third-place finisher in a position to become a kingmaker.


  1. Was this outcome approved by US/EU or not? Is regime change incoming?

  2. The more things change; the more they stay the same. The deck chairs have been rearranged but the deck is still there.

  3. Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.
