Neo-Nazi party Chryssi Aygi (Golden Dawn) won 6,97% in the legislative elections of May, 6th 2012 and entered the Greek Parliament with 21 deputies out of 300 [1]. During the press conference following the first election results, party members ordered journalists to stand to attention as a sign of respect to their leader, Nikos Mihaloliakos [2 & embedded video].

The main slogan of Golden Dawn's campaign is "For the country to be cleaned" [3]. Their slogan promoting "Greece's cleansing" refers to immigration, which was the main issue of their campaign and was also expressed just after the elections by their leader who pronounced "Greece belongs to Greeks" and "Foreigners get out of Greece" [4].  Prior to the elections, Golden Dawn's members have frequently taken the lead of the so-called "self-organised committees of residents" acting against the presence of migrants in their neighbourghoods, resulting in several violent incidents [5].

See also the file [6] and video [7] of Jungle-Report blog on Golden Dawn's ideological profile, discourse and action, as well as the documentary of the emission "Pandora's box" on the accusations of collaborative relations between the neo-Nazi party Golden Dawn and the Police during riots [8].
