The new prime minister of Greece Antonis Samaras has pledged to form a new government tomorrow. His New Democracy Party will join forces with the socialist PASOK Party which came in third place, and the smaller party called Democratic Left.
All three parties broadly back Greece's pledges to bailout creditors for further austerity and reforms, though they have pledged to renegotiate some of the terms. Samaras said:
"I will ask the new government that will be formed tomorrow to work hard so that we can offer tangible hope to our people"
With 55% of Greek people opposed to the bailout, it is difficult for the New Democracy party leader to claim people voted for the Euro.
The Greek election result did not seem to be enough to calm the financial markets across Europe, as markets remain undecided.
The Greek election delivered the result that many had considered the best outcome, so why have the markets been rocky today?
