According to the official tally, with over three-fourths of the ballots counted, Golden Dawn is sitting at 2.97 percent and will not elect a representative to Greek Parliament.

The demise of the neo-Nazi party follows a trend already set a few weeks ago, when it lost more than 50 percent of its electoral base during the European and local elections that took place in late May.

Turnout in the election was about 57% – one of the lowest figures in decades.

A total of six parties will enter parliament based on this result and without the presence of far-right Golden Dawn.

A breakdown of each party’s percentage of the vote and seats in parliament is as follows:
New Democracy – 39.78 pct and 158 seats
SYRIZA – 31.56 pct and 86 seats
ΚΙΝΑL – 7.97 pct and 22 seats
Communist Party of Greece (ΚΚΕ) – 5.34 pct and 15 seats
Εlliniki Lysi (Greek Solution) – 3.74 pct and 10 seats
MeRA25 – 3.47 pct and 9 seats
