Golden Dawn says will seek recount

The extreme right Golden Dawn party says it plans to request a nationwide ballot recount after it narrowly failed to reach the 3 percent threshold of votes required to enter parliament in Sunday's general election.

In a statement, the party said it planned to take the legal action to challenge what it described as a "scandalous result."
