Greek Politics :
Europe and Greece: a common destiny
The Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom's opinion poll on "EUROPE" shows that Greece's future is linked to its common European destiny. Greece's integration into the European community symbolized - and indeed was - a means to progress: securing national integrity after the Turkish invasion of Cyprus (1974), stability in Greek politics after decades of turbulent history, ending economic backwardness, and rapprochement with other European societies and their high standard of living. Until the 2010s, being pro-European and supporting the Union was almost a given, as Europe was both an ideal and a social prerogative in the eyes of Greeks.

Another session without liberals
Greece’s conservatives returned to power after a decisive victory in last Sunday’s snap elections. New Democracy (ND), run by Kyriakos Mitsotakis (son of Konstantinos Mitsotakis who served as Prime Minister in the early 1990s, brother of former foreign minister Dora Bakoyannis and uncle to newly elected mayor of Athens Kostas Bakoyannis) has achieved an overwhelming majority in the new parliamentary session with 39,9% and 158 out of 300 seats.
