The center-right, pro-Europe New Democracy Party appears to be hanging on to power in the early returns in hotly-contested Greek elections today, which will likely determine whether the country stays within the Eurozone.

But the country’s turmoil has also been a boon to the far right, with the neo-Nazi anti-foreigner Golden Dawn party — which gained international notoriety when its spokesman punched a Communist politician on live television — receiving some 7% of the vote.

AFP reported of the party’s final pre-election rally:

A surprisingly mixed crowd of skinheads, women and students applaud the elected ex-soldier who slapped a female communist politician on live television last week, after being elected to parliament in an inconclusive vote in May.

“Another punch for the lesbian!” supporters called out to general hilarity.
