Greek Election Coverage
Posted 17 June 2012 - 04:49 PM
However, I do have one objection. Saw Nina dos Santos at the 'magic wall' in London and I think she might have misunderstood the Greek electoral system. At one point she started adding up the percentage points of potential coalition partners implying that any coalition below 50 percent of the votes can't form a government. In fact, in proportional representation systems it's quite possible that an absolute parliamentary majority is won with less than 50 percent of popular votes. In addition, Greek system has a special feature that gives the party with most votes extra 50 seats, making it all even more complicated when the results are not in and exit polls are pointing to an extremely close race.
But to repeat, the overall coverage looks pretty good so far.
