Whats next (1) - Early elections and formation of a new government: The majority

of recent opinion polls paint a fragmented landscape with SYRIZA maintaining a lead
against New Democracy which however has narrowed to c. 3.0% recently, from an 850
average 4-5% two weeks ago. In addition, the probability of the formation of a single
750
party government appears rather low, while a SYRIZA led coalition appears to be the Dec-13 Mar-14 Jun-14 Sep-14 Dec-14
base case given current polls. Hence, deliberations between the elected political
parties should start immediately post elections in order to form a new coalition
government.
