New Greek elections set for June 25 as Parliament dissolved


Greece’s President Katerina Sakellaropoulou has issued the Presidential Decree dissolving the Parliament and officially announced a second national election will be held on June 25 this year.

As stated in the Decree, the exploratory mandates given to the leaders of the first, second and third parties in parliamentary power were rejected, with none of the leaders able to form a coalition government.

By the same Decree, voters are invited to elect deputies on June 25, 2023, and the Parliament that will result from the elections will convene on July 3, 2023.

The Presidential Decree is co-signed by acting Prime Minister Ioannis Sarmas.

The dissolution of the Parliament comes only two days after the new Parliament convened on Sunday.

This is only the second time that Greece has had a “two-day” Parliament since the restoration of democracy in 1974, with the previous one being the result of the May 2012 elections that also failed to produce a government.
