Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Seat allocations:

ND 45 - 115
SYRIZA 41-110
PASOK 37 - 105
KKE 19 - 31
An.El. 26 - 39
DIMAR 12 - 21
Chryssi Avgi 16 - 26
LAOS 0 - 11
Eco Greens 0 - 11

Looks to me that ND + PASOK would in any case attain 150 seats by themselves unless SYRIZA manages to come first.

That can't be right - those seat allocations sum to well over 400. I guess we can expect the oldest democracy money can buy to have over 100 % voter participation, but surely they cannot have over 130 % parliamentary attendance?

Well, it's 196-319 + 50 which is 250 + 50 with a lot of noise. Not everyone can be simultaneously at the bottom of their vote range or at the top of their seat range. The first three parties, in particular, could any of them get the 50-seat bonus, but can't get it simultaneously.

By those estimates the forecast of a ND + PASOK government with SYRIZA leading the opposition looks pretty good.

And the ND-PASOK government will have a very thin majority so the goal of the left will have been attained:
A good result for the left would be an inability by pro-austerity forces to form a stable government
a pro-austerity government with 150 seats plus change will crack under pressure.

As a reminder, PASOK+ND has together lost 50 MPs during the last period. Says wikipedia I hasten to add.
