The results are in – and we made it into the Greek Parliament!

The results are in!
MeRA25, DiEM25’s political party in Greece, has got into Greece’s national parliament with at least nine MPs, according to the latest official vote count as of 23:40 CET.
Yanis Varoufakis, newly elected Greek MP and MeRA25 leader, described the party’s result as “an amazing feat”.
We’re here, Yanis said, “to implement in practice our constructive disobedience, our European internationalism. We have a remarkable opportunity to break down this wall of silence, the troika-heavy and troika-dominated politics of this land, indeed of this Europe.”
For Yanis’ full statement see the video below.
