Europe News Desk!! Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has announced that general elections will be held on 21 May. General elections will be held at the end of the four-year term, as I had promised from the beginning, he said during a cabinet meeting on Tuesday. Xinhua news agency quoted the prime minister as saying that if a second round of elections is needed, it would be held in early July. The ruling conservative New Democracy party won the elections held in July 2019 and is leading in all recent opinion polls. However, most political analysts predict that it will be difficult to obtain a parliamentary majority due to the way the Greek electoral system works. The second round will be conducted under a different electoral law, which provides for additional seats for the winning party. All the 300 seats in the Parliament will be contested in the upcoming elections.
