Not so ‘golden dawn’ for Greek parliament


The extreme-right ultra-nationalist party ‘Golden Dawn’ – described by many as neo-fascist – is set to enter the Greek Parliament. Exit polls show the party has won about seven per cent of the vote – well above the required three-per-cent threshold.

­This is the first time in nearly 40 years that a far-right party is projected to enter Greece’s parliament.

“A new nationalist movement dawns. Hundreds of thousands of Greeks have dynamically joined the national cause for a great, free Greece,” Golden Dawn said on its website.

The party’s success is fueled by rising anti-immigrant sentiment amid the deteriorating economic situation that has led to sharp recession and large-scale unemployment.

Economic analyst and international lawyer Nick Skrekas believes that Greeks want to punish their governing parties for not paying attention to the people's wants and needs.
