First comment from KOE about the results of the national elections

by KOE - Communist Organization of Greece, 6 May 2012
First comment from KOE about the results of the national elections (*)

  1. The Greek people has spoken. In fact, the Greek people was speaking two years now, but the “above” were not listening. Today the Greek people has sweeped the pro-troika (IMF-EU-ECB) political forces and has provoked an earthquake that makes the political system trembling. Our people has sent a thunderous message to the troika.
  1. The path towards a different type of representation, a different political system, the path towards real democracy and a radical political transition, now gets open.
  2. The people put our country on a course of a way out, leaving behind (and punishing) all those who were managing Greece during the last two years, imposing a regime of social destruction.
  3. The great protagonists of this day, that is, the Greek people and the popular movement (which in great extent found expression in SYRIZA – Coalition of Radical Left) today shoulder a huge task: to turn this way out into a reality.

(*) This first comment is based on the exit polls after the closing of the voting. The official results will be known later. According to the exit polls, the two “big” bourgeois parties loose together more than half of the votes they obtained in 2009. From 80% of the vote that they had together in the last elections, now they total less than 40%. The Coalition of Radical Left – SYRIZA is the big winner, obtaining the 2nd place (from 4,7% in 2009, now SYRIZA obtains, according to the exit polls, from 15% to 17,5% of the popular vote!). We will send you more detailed results later.
