Turnout: 57.91%

With these results New Democracy can form on its own government, the first of its kind in the last decade, after the economic recession that has plagued Greece.

The previous government was a coalition between the left wing party Syriza and the far right party Independent Greeks which evaporated into nothingness after the Euro elections of 2019.
