"Greeks are casting their votes today in national elections that could end a 40-year era of political stability as economic hardships drive voters toward fringe parties. For more than four decades, two major political forces -- the socialist PASOK and liberal New Democracy (ND) parties -- have been ruling the country, collecting more than 70 percent of the elector’s vote. This time, experts are saying that it’s possible that the two parties gather less than 45 percent of the votes." (05/06/12)
