Aleksis Tsipras, leader of the main opposition Radical Left Alliance (SYRIZA) in Greece, said that Prime Minister Kiryakos Mitsotakis could hold early elections before the negotiations for next year’s budget.

According to the news of the Greek state agency AMNA, Tsipras made statements regarding the general election in his address to the political secretariat of his party.

Tsipras, who argued that Mitsotakis, whose normal mission period will expire in July 2023, an amendment to the election law to hold early elections before discussing next year’s budget, underlined that both the telephone wiretapping scandal in the country and the general economic difficulties in the country put pressure on Mitsotakis.

The last general election in Greece was held in July 2019. The New Democracy Party (YDP), led by Mitsotakis, came to power alone with 39.85 percent of the votes, holding 158 seats in the 300-seat parliament.


A current public opinion poll conducted in the country revealed that public support for the government of Prime Minister Kiryakos Mitsotakis has decreased.

As a result of the survey conducted by the public opinion research company GPO with the participation of 1000 people on August 22-24, it was seen that the difference, which was 8-10 percent in the last 3 years, decreased to 6 percent for the first time in the middle of Prime Minister Mitsotakis and the main opposition leader Tsipras.

31.4 percent of the vote said they would vote for YDP “if there were an election tomorrow” and 25.1 percent said they would vote for SYRIZA.
