Abstract

Greece’s elections, held on Sunday, saw both the previously most popular parties punished by voters weary of austerity measures. Kevin Featherstone reviews the results, finding that public anger has led to the rise of populist parties, some of which are on the extreme right, and that any government that is formed may well be weak and short-lived. But, despite the popular opposition to Greece’s bailout conditions, most Greeks still back the Euro and EU membership.
