Det venstreradikale paritet Syriza var den store vinneren i det greske valget, med 16 %. Ny Demokrati fikk nær 20 %, men det var en klar tilbakegang.

Verst gikk det ut over sosialistpartiet PASOK som fikk 43 prosent i 2009 og 14 prosent nå. Det er en total rasering.

Syriza ønsker å si opp hele spareplanen som EU, Pengefondet og EUs sentralbank, den såkalte troikaen, har påtvunget Hellas.

Greske velgere gjorde det man hadde forventet: de deserterte partiene som i deres øyne har kapitulert for Tyskland og Brussel, og har stemt på nasjonalistiske partier til høyre og venstre.

Mest oppsikt vil det utvilsomt vekke hvis høyreekstreme Gylden daggry har vunnet mellom 6 og 8 prosent, slik Daily Telegraph spår.

Syrizas leder er Alexis Tsipras.

Alexis Tsipras, its telegenic 40-year-old leader, has called the terms of the bailout «barbaric» and wants to lead a Leftwing government that would include KKE, the Communist Party of Greece.
He has vowed to suspend the servicing of Greece’s debt and to add a «pro-growth clause» to the repayment deal.
«The Greek people are ready to turn a page and after two years of repression we will try to lead the country united on a new course,» he said after voting.
Independent Greeks, a nationalist party formed just two months ago as a splinter group from New Democracy, was forecast to reach double figures after calling the bailout an «economic Fourth Reich».
Ultra-Right party Golden Dawn was on course to enter the 300-member parliament for the first time under the proportional representation system, with six to eight per cent. It played on fears of national decline and rising crime blamed on a growing illegal immigrant population.
Whatever government comes next is likely to seek changes to the understanding between Greece and its creditors.
