Parliamentary elections were held in Greece on 18 June 1989.[1] The liberal-conservative New Democracy party of Constantine Mitsotakis defeated the Panhellenic Socialist Movement (PASOK) of Andreas Papandreou. However, New Democracy could not form a government, despite its 5% lead in the popular vote, because of the Proportional representation voted into electoral law by the previous PASOK government.
