Golden Dawn International Newsroom

The hardships and hostility of the double municipal and regional elections were numerous. Not only was there constant propaganda by all the politicians and Media against us, but also for the conspiracy of silence that barred Golden Dawn’s representatives from public and open conversations. There was an issue of politicization of the elections, that were won, but not to their fullest potential. This will be more evident in the European Elections. But we must see the numbers for our revolutionary Party, to alleviate all doubts that the Greek People will not withdraw from the nationalist phalanx!
In 2012 in the capital Attica region, GD received 7,5% of the vote. Yesterday, we received 30.384 additional votes even though 236.597 less votes were cast in comparison with the 2012 elections. Golden Dawn almost doubled her Nationwide percentage receiving 11,11% of the vote and conquering the 3rd place!
The capital city itself rewarded us with an even greater support. Golden Dawn increased her strength there from 7,81% to 16,12%!
In Western Greece, there was an increase in every department, getting us from 7,59% in 2012 to 9,46% in 2014!
In Macedonia we saw increases ranging from 0,8% to 2,5%. Our candidate mayor for the capital of the region, Salonica, went from 6,8% to 7,7%!
Mainland Greece gave us the highest regional increase, from 7% to 10%!
All other regions increased our support by ~1%
Returning back to Athens, there are departments, like Plato’s Academy and others, that rewarded Golden Dawn with 20,7% of the vote and the first place! Other densely populated areas also gave big support for Golden Dawn, about 18,8%.
The most triumphant winners were our comrades in Golden Dawn, and the greatest losers are the polling companies, that failed tragically to predict the actual results, under-representing GD and over-representing the Left and the Right.
These elections are only a sample of our overall increase. There is no expression of our voters in areas where Golden Dawn was unable to place candidates. Not to mention the various tricks the State tried to pull in order to “lose” our ballot papers. Neither of these two factors will be a problem for the EU elections! Indicative of this is the outcry on the public Media, where they discuss the “dangerous” rise of Golden Dawn, that is like a splinter in their minds.
