Report: Greek prime minister calls snap elections

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras called snap general elections after his Syriza party came behind the opposition New Democracy party in the European Parliament elections, Reuters reported.

The right-leaning New Democracy party secured 33.27% of the votes in Greece, while the left-leaning Syriza won 23.85%, according to provisional results of the pan-European elections held from May 23 to 26.

The national elections would likely be held by June 30 at the earliest, a party source reportedly told the news wire. Greece must hold elections by October at the latest.

Tsipras has been serving as Greek prime minister since 2015.
