The Greek political scene is in full swing preparing for new elections on June 17, little more than a month after the previous elections in May failed to provide a useful basis for forming an executive cabinet.
The blogsite Politik i Grekland has published some measurements we made on the relative stature in Greek-language social media for the eleven main parties campaigning for seats in the parliament. Their blog post is in Swedish but the main observation is that left wing party Syriza claims most of the attention – positive, negative, and worried alike – and that the traditional labour party Pasok has gained some ground during the last few days.
There is a moratorium on opinion polls until the election, but our monitors will stay trained on the Greek social media until the polls close. We will publish an update on the electoral sentiment in the next few days!
