Greek voters returned to the polls on Sunday and voted in the pro-bailout, conservative New Democracy party after inconclusive elections in May. The Syriza party, which took the stance to cancel the bailout, nationalize banks, freeze privatization, but stay in the Eurozone, took 27% of the vote to New Democracy’s 30%. Only 40% of voters backed parties that broadly supported a bailout deal with the EU and the IMF. Antonis Samaras, New Democracy’s leader, said Greeks had chosen to stay in the euro and called for a “national salvation government.” “There is no time to waste,” he said. “A national salvation government must bring economic growth and reassure Greeks the worst is over.” The U.S. said that it was in everyone’s interests “for Greece to remain in the euro area.”
