Greek main opposition party calls for early general election

PanARMENIAN.Net - Greece's main opposition party has formally requested an early general election after winning vote for the European Parliament, arguing that the country's conservative government now lacks the legitimacy to implement reforms related to international bailouts, the Associated Press reported.

Alexis Tsipras, leader of the left-wing Syriza party, visited Greece's president Monday, May 26, to make the request "to restore the democratic order in the country."

Tsipras has vowed to cancel bailout agreements that rescued Greece from bankruptcy but also imposed harsh austerity measures.

With just over 99 percent of votes voted, Syriza leads with 26.6 percent of the vote, while center-right coalition government leader New Democracy received 22.71 percent.

The government, midway through its four-year term, late on Sunday ruled out calling an early election.
