Greek elections: Greece returns to the polls - live coverage | World news | guardian.co.uk
The elections may have resulted in a win for the conservative New Democracy party, but there's been fighting talk from Alexis Tspiras of Syriza, which came a very close second. He sees the party in a strong place as opposition.
This is only the beginning for New Democracy, forming a coalition is not going to be easy – as Syriza found last time around.
The US and the EU have been issuing supportive statements on Greece but have called for timely progress.
Antonis Samaras has three days to form a new government. If he fails, it falls to Syriza. If they pass, it falls to Pasok in third place. For many, a worst case scenario would see new elections. But as Tsipras's statement indicates, he, as others, are keen to find some kind of stability. When it comes to the euro, for now it seems, that may happen.
