Conservatism is making a comeback in Europe, with a newly formed nationalist party earning seats in Greek parliament.
The Spartan party earned 4.7% of the popular vote in Sunday’s election in Greece. The nationalist conservative party will now hold 13 seats in the 300-member parliament.
This has been seen as victory for conservatives worldwide, especially Greece, with the party’s leader promising to “represent Greek ideals and values in the next Parliament, values that are currently absent.”
While the centre-right New Democracy party will hold onto power, the nationalist Spartan party will represent conservatives that feel that the country’s leadership moved too far to the left.
The Spartan party has been smeared as a “far right” political party by the mainstream media. Italy’s first female prime minister Giorgia Meloni has faced similar attacks.
