ND-backed incumbents in Athens, Thessaloniki soundly defeated; ND 'rebel' candidates win most of remaining regional governor seats

The second round of local government elections in Greece on Sunday saw ruling New Democracy (ND) party-backed candidates lose the municipal races in Athens and Thessaloniki, as well as in five out of the six regional governor seats up for grabs.

Nevertheless, candidates that are ND party cadres ND or backed by the center-right party had picked up seven out of the 13 regional governors’ seats last Sunday, while on the second Sunday four of the five candidates in the regional races were from within the party’s ranks, but running against an officially backed candidate.
