Just when new Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis was being sworn-in, questions on whether the new conservative government will respect the fiscal agreements made by the outgoing administration of Alexis Tsipras.

Greece’s conservative New Democracy party won in a landslide the 7 July snap national election, defeating the ruling radical left-wing Syriza party. A total of six parties will enter parliament based on the result and without the presence of far-right Golden Dawn. A breakdown of each party’s percentage of the vote and seats in the 300-seat parliament shows New Democracy winning 39.78% and 158 seats, SYRIZA with 31.56 % and 86 seats, ΚΙΝΑL at 7.97 % and 22 seats, Communist Party of Greece (ΚΚΕ) with 5.34 % and 15 seats, Εlliniki Lysi (Greek Solution) won 3.74 % and 10 seats, and MeRA25 with 3.47 % and 9 seats.

“(Jean-Claude) Juncker assured the incoming government that they can continue counting in their full support to ensure that the country and its people will live with the full benefits of the efforts that were undertaken in recent years,” said the European Commission’s Deputy spokesperson, Mina Andreeva.
