‘SYRIZA can win the next election’: Party leader Alexis Tsipras


SYRIZA party leader, Alexis Tsipras, has expressed confidence that Greece’s main opposition will win in next year’s general election.

“Opinion polls speak of a sizeable chunk of undecided voters and increasing public discontent with the government over the economy,” Tsipras said in an interview with Skai TV on Tuesday.

“This pool of undecided voters is not going to swing toward the ruling party… I believe SYRIZA can win the next election.”

Greece’s upcoming elections, which are scheduled for June 2023, will be fought under proportional representation, which means that no party will win an overall majority.

A second ballot will follow, under a new law passed by ruling New Democracy, which will give the top voting-getting party a large number of bonus members of Parliament.

According to Ekathimerini, public surveys show the conservatives of Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis polling more than eight points ahead of SYRIZA.
