Greek political parties are once again making compromises to find a viable coalition government. In Sunday's election,the conservative New Democracy party came out on top with the left-wing Syrzia party in close second place, and no clear majority. Syriza has already said it won't be part of any New Democracy-led government. In third place with 12.5 percent of votes was Greece's Socialist party, Pasok , which held power between 2009 and 2011. RFI spoke to Dmitri Droutsas, a leading Pasok member, about the very near future of Greek politics.
