ATHENS, September 20 /TASS/. Snap parliamentary elections started in Greece at 07:00 local time [07:00 Moscow time] on Sunday. Approximately 9.8 million eligible voters are expected to elect 300 members of the one-chamber parliament for a four-year term. The candidates represent fourteen parties and five election associations.
The Greek Interior Ministry told TASS that the first vote results would be known after 21:00 Moscow time.
The snap parliamentary elections are taking place amidst political uncertainty and economic hardships. The polls became inevitable after the government of Alexis Tsipras, the leader of the Coalition of the Radical Left (SYRIZA), had lost the majority in parliament following the refusal of almost 40 "dissident" members of his own party to vote on the Third Economic Adjustment Programme for Greece worth about 86 billion euros.
On August 20, Tsipras resigned, the parliament was disbanded and the date for snap general elections was set.
