New Prime Minister of Greece

New Prime Minister of Greece

GREECE will have a new prime minister, and Europe its first anti-austerity government, following elections on January 25th.

Cyprus hopes seamlessly work with the new Prime Minister of Greece Mr. Aleksi Tsipra, in the area of economics and National issues.

The New Prime Minister of Greece said that his first trip will be in Cyprus, so we expect the meeting between the two leaders.

Preliminary results show that Syriza, a left-wing party led by Alexis Tsipras, has won handsomely, claiming around 36% of the vote, an eight-percentage-point lead over the New Democracy party of Antonis Samaras, the outgoing prime minister. Cyprus Syriza’s support leapt by nine percentage points compared with the 2012 election result.

Syriza fell just short of an absolute majority, winning 149 seats in the 300-seat parliament. Mr Tsipras seems set to form a governing coalition with the small right-wing Independent Greeks party, which won 13 seats. In a victory speech in Athens, Mr Tsipras told supporters that the "troika" of institutions (the European Commission, the European Central Bank and the IMF) that oversees Greece's bail-out programme was a thing of the past. That may be a promise he cannot deliver on. But he has been given a mandate to try.  

“The Greek people punished New Democracy for governing in the petty manner of the old regime’s political parties,” Aristides Hatzis, an associate professor of law and economics at the University of Athens, said by phone. “Most Greeks voting Syriza don’t expect a spectacular change but a marginal one. A marginal one would be significant for them.”

Greek citizens are fed austerity and chose this way to express anger and their anger .

Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades has congratulated Alexis Tsipras, President of SYRIZA party, for his victory in yesterday`s Greek general elections.

In a telegram he sent earlier today, Anastasiades notes he looks forward to a close relationship between the two governments, adding he would be happy to receive him in Cyprus as soon as possible.

“I would like to congratulate you most warmly on your proud and historic victory, wishing you every success with regard to the mandate that the Greek people have given you,” President Anastasiades says, according to an official press release issued on Monday.

let's hope that the relations between Greece and Cyprus will remain as it was decades until today . Close, friendly and supportive...
