Snap elections becoming more possible after Tsipras fails to gain support for proportional representation bill

Following the Greek government’s strategic defeat on the matter of pushing through a draft bill to introduce a proportional representative electoral system, as it fell short of the necessary 200 parliamentary votes to move forward, the prospect of the Tsipras government calling a snap election has gained support within the ruling SYRIZA party. Amid a climate of economic suffocation, rising social discontent and with the second harsher review by the country’s creditors imminent, the Tsipras administration appears to be looking at an early election as an exit from its impasse. The close circle of associates and advisors of PM Alexis Tsipras is convinced that the lead by opposition party New Democracy in the polls is reversible. Meanwhile, major opposition party New Democracy has mobilised its apparatus preparing for early elections, believing the Tsipras government cannot burden the impact of the failing economy and the growing social dissatisfaction.
