Greek newspaper Ekathimerini published our member KEFiM’s research with the title: “Greek anti-systemic parties vote regularly against EU law, survey shows”

Greek parties that are described as populist, anti-liberal and Eurosceptic regularly vote against EU laws brought to Parliament for approval, according to policy paper published by the Athens-based Center for Liberal Studies (KEFiM) on Thursday.

In an analysis reviewing the voting patterns of 15 Greek parties that have been in opposition from 2004 to 2023, the largest legislative consensus on EU bills was shown by the now-defunct liberal party Potami, which voted for 87% of the EU laws, followed by center-left PASOK with 75.9%, center-right (and now ruling) New Democracy (ND) with 74.4% and nationalist Popular Orthodox Rally (LAOS) with 66.7%.
