The scenario for a “special purpose” government may have entered the pre-election debate yesterday, but it seems more likely to be a pre-election “bra de fer” than something realistic and feasible. The May 21 ballot will be a guide to how the parties will move the next day and – how and if – they will make use of the exploratory orders. The prime minister’s clear position Kyriakou Mitsotakis during the cross-channel interview on Sunday and yesterday on ANT1, as well as the whole atmosphere coming out of the New Democracy camp leaves no room for consultation with Nikos Androulakis. Based on polling data, second elections are very difficult to avoid. The “blue faction” is chasing self-reliance and has no reason not to do it since with the enhanced analog, it hopes to reach a percentage close to 38%. This is the measure of self-reliance for July 2 (probable date for the second ballots) given that approximately 8% of the parties participating in the elections will remain outside the Parliament. Accordingly, for the first match of the simple proportional this percentage “jumps” to 46%.

Possibly with the attack that Kyriakos Mitsotakis has launched recently towards the PASOK to wish to justify his decision not to consider the possibility of forming a coalition government. It is not only that the head of Harilaou Trikoupis has declared his opposition to Kyriakos Mitsotakis being prime minister, but also the political differences that have recently been promoted by New Democracy. Despite the fact that, according to the measurements so far, the arithmetic seems to be working out, Kyriakos Mitsotakis does not seem to have a reason to use the three-day exploratory order. He will receive it, as required by the Constitution, it is doubtful, but whether he will enter even for formal reasons in some discussion process. “Let me have some papers closed,” Mr. Mitsotakis said yesterday in response to the specific issue.

The smaller parties are constantly declaring that they do not intend to enter a coalition government. THE Alexis Tsipras if he doesn’t cut the thread first he will get the second exploratory command. He has pledged not to seek to form a government of losers. He has categorically ruled it out many times. All indications are that the order will be handed over to the third party in turn. If the president of SYRIZA wins next Sunday’s elections it is clear that he will exhaust all ways to form a government with PASOK, despite the objections expressed by Nikos Androulakis. In “Avgi tis Kyriaki” he characteristically stated that “after the elections, the small party pre-election excesses come to an end. The responsibility takes their place”, meaning that each political force attempts at this stage to entrench its space and achieve the best possible result.

Since the first does not wish to form a government with the third, it is very difficult for the exploratory mandate that Nikos Androulakis will receive to be effective. The last attempt will be made by Katerina Sakellaropoulou with the convergence of the Council of Political Leaders where it will simply be ascertained that everyone’s will is for the country to go to the polls again. It is recalled that all the above scenarios are basically based on the data of the measurement companies that have been presented so far. If there is no change or reversal, as soon as the investigative orders do not “bear fruit”, the President of the Republic will assign one of the three Presidents of the Supreme Courts of the country to form a government in order to hold elections. Subsequently, the newly formed Parliament will be dissolved.

In strictly procedural terms on Monday, May 22, the Acting Minister of the Interior, Kalliopi Spanou, will visit Kostas Tassoulas to deliver him the official results of the elections. The president of the Parliament will visit the president of the Republic in order to announce the result and to start the procedures required by the Constitution.
