Police arrest 16-year-old over Exarchia polling station attack

Police in Athens on Thursday detained a 16-year-old Albanian youth in connection with an attack last Sunday on a building in the downtown neighborhood of Exarchia by vandals lobbing stones and bottles.

The building, which served as a polling station, was one of several attacked on Sunday when snap elections were held.

A clear result

The outcome is clear; not just because there is a clear difference between the first and second party, but mainly because New Democracy will be able to form a majority government and see through its term. Its absolute majority also sends a message beyond Greece's borders that the country can return to stability.
