Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras late Sunday (26.05.2019) evening said he will declare snap elections for next month, in June, hours after his hard left SYRIZA party suffered a convincing defeat at the hands of center-right New Democracy (ND) party in the European Parliament and local government elections.
Tsipras appeared just before midnight in a nationally televised address to say he will "not run away from the battle", and declare snap elections immediately after the second round of municipal elections, next Sunday.
