Syriza won the election in Greece

Syriza won the election in Greece
Syriza leader Alexis Tsipras says hard work will lead Greece forward, after the party regained power. Now the challenge of implementing the agreement with the international lenders awaits.

A few hours after the polling stations in Greece closed Sunday evening, it was clear that the left party Syriza would be victorious.

Alexis Tsipras' party won with 35.5 percent, of the votes, while the conservative New Democracy had close to 28.1 percent of the votes and acknowledged defeat.

Far-right Golden Dawn came in third with 7%, slightly up on January's poll.

Syriza will get 145 of the 300 seats in parliament.

Tsipras has already made it clear that he wants to form a government with the party Independent Greeks, as he did after the election victory in January.

- The country will not get back on its feet by itself. There will be hard work and challenges along the way, said Tsipras in his first speech after the election, according to Reuters.

French President François Hollande said that Syriza's victory is an important success for both Greece and Europe.

- This is an important clarification for Greece, which will now get a stable period with a solid majority, said the French president.
