Groundhog Day: SYRIZA – ANEL coalition gov’t to be sworn in asap

With a clear victory of 35.5% and 7.2% lead towards New Democracy, Alexis Tsipras is expected to be sworn in as Prime Minister tomorrow Monday. Right after his victory was clear, Tsipras met with Independent Greeks leader Panos Kammenos and agreed to form Greece’s next coalition government. The cabinet will be announced Tuesday or Wednesday and right after procedures are concluded, the SYRIZA-ANEL will have to proceed with the implementation of lenders’ ‘reforms’ commonly known as ‘austerity cuts’.

“We achieved a huge victory, this is the people’s victory. We gave a hard battle,” SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras stated on Sunday evening.

“The Greek people gave us a clear four-year mandate to fight. In the last seven months we fought with assymetrical powers. SYRIZA proved that it is too hard to die. From tomorrow we are done with the old,” Tsipras said.

He thanked Independent Greeks (ANEL) leader Panos Kammenos clarifying that they will continue to co-govern. “From tomorrow we will work hard for a Greece of equality and progress in order to have a more powerful and fairer Greece,” Tsipras underlined.

“We have difficulties ahead of us, but also solid ground. We have perspective. Recovery will come through a lot of work, through a plan to return to growth,” Tsipras said.

“The mandate that the Greek people gave to us is a mandate to put an halt to corruption that ruled the country for so many years. They gave us a second and important chance to end that regime. As of tomorrow, we will put the old regime behind,” he added.

PS On October 20th Greeks will be called to elect “Best elections of the Year”

  1. I can’t believe how stupid my people are.

    • I come to different conclusions. The Greek voters never yearned breaking free from austerity if that also required leaving the euro. Despite all the rumblings there’s too much to lose. The objective was to extract as much marginal relief as possible, _while staying in the euro_. If that meant coming out with (nearly) nothing, so be it.

    The legalization of the capitulation or of the unconditionnal surrender. The voters had the choice between the bad, the worse and the worst. The next time Tsipras will go to Delphe and ask Apollo for advice. Good luck Alexis!
