Greece elections: Centre-right regains power under Kyriakos Mitsotakis

 

Greece's centre-right opposition party New Democracy has won the nation's snap general election.

With most districts counted, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras admitted defeat to his rival, Kyriakos Mitsotakis.

New Democracy has 39.85% of the vote so far, with Mr Tsipras's leftist Syriza party in second place with 31.53%.

Current projections give New Democracy an outright majority, as the winner receives 50 extra seats in parliament.

Are they the kind to tell the EU where to go with austerity?

My understanding is that they want to take ownership of the recovery program and institute more reforms in return for changing the draconian bailout agreement that tied the hands of the last administration.
