Elections in Greece are over and their results caused a deep sigh of relief not only among the frightened Greeks, but also in European and world capitals. The fact that voters preferred to follow the way of remaining in the euro area rather than embarking on ventures of unknown end has already produced positive results: Asian stock exchanges have reported increases in profits and the euro has slightly increased its rate to the U.S. dollar.
For the second time, GRReporter readers knew exactly the outcome of the second round of elections of significant importance for the future of Greece. In all three versions of the website, the second choice, i.e. pro-European forces will unite and win the elections, received the highest number of votes. Some parties may have participated independently in the elections, but the sum of the rates of pro-European parties is 49% against 46% for the "anti-memorandum front." In the Bulgarian version of the website, 36% of readers voted for this option, they were an absolute majority in the Greek version with 43% and 34% in the English one.
The probability of SYRIZA winning the elections found the strongest support among the readers of the Bulgarian version. In the Greek version, 22% voted for it and the least was the support for it in the English version – 20% of votes.
Greek readers are those who assessed the formation of a coalition government with the participation of SYRIZA and Independent Greeks as possible with 17%. This option was supported by 15% of Bulgarian readers of GRReporter and 14% of English language readers.
Conversely, the majority of them, or 19%, were more likely to believe that the outcome of elections will not result in a cabinet for Greece and the country will face a third election race. The specific option was supported by 12% of readers of the Bulgarian and only by 9% of readers of the Greek version.
Similar are the results of the last option: "Due to the risk of civil clashes the military will take the power and cancel the elections." It was supported by 13% of readers of the English version, 11% of readers of the Bulgarian and 9% of readers of the Greek version of GRReporter.
