"I would like to congratulate the hundreds of thousands of Greek men and women who did not change their votes as they were invited to do by the paid journalists and the appointed propagators and showed respect to Golden Dawn with the choice they made." This is how the leader of Golden Dawn Nikos Mihaloliakos started his formal speech only a few minutes after the ballot boxes in Greece were closed and the first preliminary results were announced to the public. The first data suggest that the neo-Nazi party won around 6.9%, which is close to the seven percent, which it received at the previous elections in May. Now, some Greek journalists gathered in the pre-election media centre in Zappeion Hall, are commenting that Golden Dawn might get a little higher support, but without justifying this assumption.
"We are the national opposition. We will continue to fight inside and outside parliament in order to repeal the nation killing Memorandum, which led our people to exhaustion and is a humiliation for us. It seems that from being the sixth party after the previous elections, today Golden Dawn will become the fourth political power in the country". Finally Mihaloliakos ironically expressed his warmest condolences to all who had hoped that the extreme party that he represents would stay out of the parliament after the second elections for this year.
