GREEK FINANCIAL MARKET
The General Index in Athens Stock Exchange (ASE) closed at 689.86 posting marginal profits of 0.37% in a turnover of €29.12mn.
The New Democracy led by Antonis Samaras was the largest party with 18.9% of the vote, insufficient to give it an absolute majority. The leftist Syriza party scored 16.8%, while Pasok saw its score slump to 13.2%. The Golden Dawn entered to parliament for the first time with 7%. The communist KKE scored 8.5%, Independent Greeks 10.6% and Democratic Left 6.1%. The result therefore will make it tough to form a government able to keep its austerity promises and implement more cuts demanded by the country’s creditors.
The President of New Democracy Mr. Antonis Samaras suggests a government of national rescue under two conditions: a) the country will remain within the Eurozone and b) the amendment of the Memorandum policies in order to have growth and relieve the Greek society.
