Parliamentary Election: 2015
On January 25, 2015 Greece voted to elect members to the 300 seat Hellenic Parliament.

Total seats: 300
Leading party: SYRIZIA ; Seats: 149
Coalition Partner: ANEL ; Seats: 13
Registered voters: 9,911,495
Votes cast: 6,330,786

The 2015 election was unique on account of several reasons. 134 out of 300 Members of Parliament were voted in for the first time. This Parliament has 68 women Members of Parliament, the highest representation of women in parliament, till date. For the first time, Members were given the option to take a civil oath instead of a religious one and most decided to opt for the civil oath.

For the first time, the Left-wing party SYRIZIA emerged as the leading party with 149 seats. The constitution mandates a minimum of 151 seats for a party/coalition to form the government, therefore the Alexis Tsipras-led SYRIZIA reached out to Panos Kammenos-led ANEL in a coalition agreement to form the government. On January 26, 2015 Alexis Tsipras was sworn in as Prime Minister.

SYRIZIA’s remarkable performance comes in the backdrop of serious financial crisis being faced by Greece, with the strong discontent and opposition from the people to further austerity measures being implemented on pressure from the European Union (EU), International Monetary Fund (IMF) and European Central Bank (ECB).

People discontent can be gauged by the fact that the earlier leading party, the Antonis Samaras-led New Democracy (ND) was down to just 76 seats from 129, won in last elections held in 2012. Evangelos Venizelos-led PASOK, ND’s coalition partner, won only 13 seats from 33 won in 2012. However, Stavros Theodorakis-led To Potami, despite being a new party, managed to win 17 seats polling 6.05% votes.

Notable absentee from the Parliament was George Papandreou, former Prime Minister and former Chairman of PASOK. This was the first time since 1923 that a member of the Papandreou family was not represented in Parliament.

The number of Members of Parliament elected for the first time were 88 from SYRIZIA, New Democracy-14, Golden Dawn-5, To Potami-14, KKE-5, ANEL-6, PASOK-3.
