‘Tactical voting’ is quickly becoming a buzzword for the UK’s June 8 elections, with groups calling for strategic alliances and for EU supporters to vote for the least-worst option available.

I think the original sentence is

...with groups calling for strategic alliances and (with groups calling) for EU supporters to vote for the least-worst option available.

Is my understanding correct?

Thanks!

Yes, except I'd say that you quoted the original sentence and offer a variant to make sure you understood the original.

Pardon my ignorance, do you mean that I wrote

...with groups calling for strategic alliances and (with groups calling) for EU supporters to vote for the least-worst option available.

so you could confirm that I really understand?

What you described as the "original sentence" was not really the original sentence. It was a variation you wrote to help you understand the original sentence.

Your understanding of the sentence is correct.
