The Greek election results were, first and foremost, a victory for the center-right New Democracy, whose nearly 40 percent of the vote secured it an absolute majority in parliament. For the time since 2009 — when the center-left PASOK (Panhellenic Socialist Movement) last won an election — a single party will form the government. Throughout most of the crisis, Greece has been run by coalitions, including Syriza’s pact with the right-wing ANEL (Independent Greeks). But New Democracy’s victory has formally brought that period to an end. Political stability has returned to Greece, and the traditional forces of government are back in power.
