  1. There were 160 votes the first round and more reported to come in subsequent votes, then why all the panic and rumors of bribes. The third and last vote requires only 180 votes so why all the hand wringing from the EU and ND? That is polls have been taken and clearly there are not enough votes to elect a president. Enjoy the show as the Eurocrats squirm while crying disaster, tragedy and calamity again and again and again.

  2. In a democracy let the people decide unfortunately in the birthplace of democracy an electrol system which is a sham and under no circumstances can Be called democracy rules so nothing will change the same old corrupt politicians will be in power the same legal system which is cronyism in disguise as a legal system will continue the same media with its vested interests will continue to inform the gullible Greek people Of how wonderful everything is In short nothing will change
