Five Things To Know About Greece’s July 7 Vote.

Greeks head to the polls on Sunday in a snap ballot that could bring an end to Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras’s leftist government.

In May, fewer than 59 percent of registered voters cast their ballots for the European parliament and the first round of local and regional elections. A week later, participation fell below 42 percent for the second round.The memory of political instability in Greece at the height of the economic crisis is still recent. In 2011, the government collapsed and a few months later, back-to-back elections had to be held before a coalition administration could be pieced together.

The conservative New Democracy party is heavily favoured to win, after a near-sweep in regional elections and a victory margin of over nine points in European parliament elections. The Communist KKE party, which turned 100 last year, has some of the country’s most faithful supporters. It picked up 302,000 votes in the European parliament elections, nearly the same amount garnered in national elections four years ago.Shifting sands of far-right
