Greek parliamentary elections have begun today amid wide uncertainty over the new government and its handling of the austerity crisis gripping the nation.
The outgoing centre-left Pasok and centre-right New Democracy coalition government are expected to face a setback due to austerity measures imposed by the government for securing emergency bailout funding to Greece.
The new government should continue implementing austerity programme for Greece's access to bailout funds from the EU, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund - the so-called Troika.
Reports suggest that no single party will attain a majority. An inconclusive outcome to the election may raise questions over the country's membership of the euro.
