On 25 June, Greek voters went to the polls for the second time in two months as Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis called for snap elections to consolidate his victory. His party, New Democracy, gained 41% of the votes on 21 May but fell short of an absolute majority.

This online Elections Monitor reflected upon the implications of the elections' results for the formation of a sustainable government and for the EU. How did the scandals affect the electoral dynamics, also considering the upcoming EP elections? How will the result influence the geopolitical situation in the Eastern Mediterranean, and especially the relationship with Türkiye?

Speakers: Eleni Varvitsioti, Athens Correspondent, Financial Times; Janis A. Emmanouilidis, Deputy Chief Executive & Director of Studies, European Policy Centre

Moderator: Marta Mucznik, Policy Analyst, European Policy Centre
