TSIPRAS TO FORM A NEW GOVERNMENT

Postby miltiades » Sun Sep 20, 2015 7:35 pm

It looks more than likely that the charismatic Alexis Tsipras will form the next Greek government, albeit a coalition but nevertheless still led by Tsipras.

Early exit polls put Syriza ahead by just a small margin, my own prediction is that Syriza will gain more than 35% of the total vote, needing a coalition much larger than before. GD, have again failed to pull more than about 7%.

By the way, I do like Tsipras, wish him all the very best.

Why?

Tsipras has been a complete and utter failure.

There was absolutely no point in voting Samaras out to begin with.

Syriza have been the FIRST European party to make a start at standing up to the bankers controlling/destroying Europe.

Now, back to get the job finished ... :)

Some commentators referred to the result as a " Shock " result, Tsipras gains 35.5%, just 6 seats short of an overall majority.

My forecast was spot on !!

he has already signed on the dotted line....If he starts back-tracking I suspect it will be very bad for Greece, worse even than following the EU/Austerity program. I the rupture in trust would be enormous and suspect it would put Grexit back on the agenda.

I would go so far as to say that the period between Tsipoura being elected and his volte-face after the referendum was disaster for Greece as it set the reconstruction process (which was beginning to work) back.

For the avoidance of doubt it my sincere wish that Greece has a strong vibrant economy which all Greeks benefit from.

I very much doubt that Tsipras will embark upon " backtrucking" , the electorate has now endorsed his agreement for required austerity measures, unlike the previous election no promises to end austerity have been made. He has to tow the line for the sake of the Greek economy.
