After months of uncertainty, the future of Greece does seem to be in the Eurozone, as New Democracy, the centre right pro-bailout party, has had a narrow win in the Greek elections.

Defeating the anti-bailout left-wing party Syriza, New Democracy did not achieve the majority required to enter power, and their leader Antonis Samaras, will now seek to form a coalition government.

Samaras heralded the result as a victory for Europe.

"Today the Greek people expressed their will to stay anchored with the euro, remain an integral part of the euro zone, honour the country's commitments and force their growth. This is a victory for all Europe. I call upon all political parties that share those objectives to join forces and form a stable new government. I will make sure that the sacrifices of the Greek people will bring the country back to prosperity with our partners in Europe in order to supplement the current policy mix with growth enhancement policies. We are determined to do what it takes and do it fast"

It is predicted that a coalition will be formed with Pasok, the party that came in third and had also pledged to honour the austerity measures imposed on the country by the European Union and the International Monetary Fund.

Alex Tsipras, leader of Syriza, stated that he would not form a coalition with either of the pro-bailout parties, and that the result proved many in the country were against the bailout and austerity measures.

"As of Monday we will continue our battle having the confidence that the future does not belong to the terrorised but to the bearers of hope. A new day for Greece has already dawned."

This is Greece's second parliamentary elections after the previous one held on 6 May remained inconclusive.
