Election fever

The Greek press reports that despite being presented with a major challenge by the rest of the world on the state of play of the economy and the future of the Euro political parties continue to be organising on party and ideological lines ignoring the seriousness of the current crisis.

Alexis Tsipras, leader of the radical left party Syriza with 22% of the vote at the recent election is trying to appeal to the voters who want to reject the austerity measures imposed on the country but is not explaining the consequences of what that would mean as honestly as one could. The other two major parities, PASOK and ND are pro European and want the country to stay in the Euro.

The communist with 26 seats refuse  to talk or work with Syriza, Lets just hope that the result of the election on the 17 June will produce some break through.
