Green MEPs hailed the result as a victory for the forces opposed to austerity. Keith Taylor, Green MEP for South East England, and Molly Scott Cato, MEP for South West England, said: “The result of the Greek elections has shown that the people of Greecehave taken a strong stand against the politics of austerity. Greens share the view of the new government that austerity is a failed model which has piled misery on the poorest while making the wealthiest even richer. This result shows that challenging business as usual politics can win the support of the people.
“We hope the Greek election result marks the beginnings of ordinary people standing up to a discredited economic model and failing Governments across Europe.”
