The Two Weekend Elections That Could Have Had Global Implications -- PICTURES

June 18, 2012

Two countries began voting in elections over the weekend that had the potential to reverberate loudly beyond their respective borders. In Greece, the choice could have led to an exit from the eurozone. In Egypt, the already fraught election had the potentital to ignite more unrest.

Supporters of the far-right party Golden Dawn celebrate the results of the elections outside their headquarters in Thessaloniki, Greece, on Sunday. Projections showed Golden Dawn returning to the 300-member Parliament with 18 seats, just three fewer than it had won in an inconclusive May 6 election, when no party won enough votes to form a government. Greece is in a financial crisis that threatens it's place in the eurozone and could hurt the global economy.(AP Photo/Dimitri Messinis)
