PASOK will obviously participate in an ND-led government, and so will DIMAR probably. Otherwise they will lead the country to a third election and that threat was one of the accusations leveled against SYRIZA in the campaign period - that if it wins no-one will work with them and thus they will force the country to a third election.
SYRIZA's newest voters are unlikely to be budge in the short term as long as one of the things that unite them still is in place: austerity. The hatred of the ND/PASOK corruption will in all likelyhood be rekindled every few days or so. But in the long term the only thing that unites these voters is the person of Alexis Tsipras. This is very uncomfortable for a political space which frowned upon "leader-worship". So in the coming few months SYRIZA in its new extent will try to organize itself into something more coherent...
But PASOK is dead and ND scored its lowest percentage ever despite the campaign of fear and the near-total (and near-totalitarian) support it had from the MSM. The Nazis have not reached their possible maximum yet. Note that social reaction to this disaster has been limited these past few months as people were waiting to see what would come out of the elections... I don't think this moratorium will be in place for long... And I expect a strong and violent reaction to the Nazis continued murderous attacks against immigrants and leftists. Since the media will spin this in a "battle of extremisms" narrative, this can easily get out of hand...

9.39pm To wrap up today's events, the parties that broadly back the country's international bailout will agree to form a coalition government on Tuesday, a senior official with New Democracy party told Reuters on Monday. "We are going to clinch a deal tomorrow, we will form a government," the official, who declined to be named, said. The official said that Pasok party would appoint members in the next cabinet and also expressed hope that the Democratic Left, would take part.

Indeed. Our media elites are scaremongering about SYRIZA while such things happen now with a regularity:
4.42pm Golden Dawn "celebrated" their consolidating election performance yesterday with another attack on an immigrant. A Pakistani national was stabbed last night at Attiki train station. According to Vima, the attack took place at around 23.30, with eye witnesses, confirming the assault and the fact that the attackers were Golden Dawn supporters.
