Our guest expert, Dr. Anastasia Kafe from the Panteion University helped us understand the different interesting aspects of the election and campaign process. The political scientist explained the impact of the recent amendments to the electoral law on the 2023 parliamentary ballot, and gave us an insight to the key to success of prime minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis’ center-right New Democracy party, which managed to gain considerable support with almost 41% of the vote. Dr. Kafe pointed at the possible reasons for the huge defeat of former leftist premier Alexis Tsipras’ Syriza party and for the rise of smaller radical and extremist political formations on both edges of the political spectrum.
