(Before It's News)

It is true, Greece had no real choice in this election, but the few Greeks who voted have legitimized the crimes committed by Tsipras and Syriza. The leftist Syriza party won the Greek elections under the scrutiny of 50% of votes released by the Interior Ministry. According to this count, Syriza achieved 35.5% of the votes and the conservative New Democracy 28%. These ratios would mean that of a total of 300 parliamentary seats, Syriza would get 145 and the New Democracy would get only 75. Former Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, who condemned Greece to more debt after a NO vote in the referendum, has addressed his party’s headquarters, where, raising his arm in victory, he was hailed by the crowd. One of his first statements was: “Before us opens the way to work and struggle.” Tsipras used the same tone he employed when he was first elected as Prime Minister, when he lied about coming to fight the Troika and austerity. For his part, Meimarakis acknowledged his party’s defeat and congratulated Tsipras. “We took the battle seriously, apparently the result gives victory to Syriza and Tsipras. I congratulate them, the rest we will discuss,” said Meimarakis to the media upon arrival at the headquarters of the party, near the center of Athens. The President of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz, has been among the first leaders to congratulate Tsipras. “I just congratulated Alexis Tsipras of Syriza for his victory in the Greek elections. Now a strong government prepared to generate results is needed quickly,” he wrote in a message on Twitter. The lack of trust in all of the candidates was made clear as participation could be one of the lowest in the Greek democratic history: 54.4% versus 63.6% who supported Tsipras in his previous victory, in January this year. Throughout election day people have highlighted the high abstentionism -in one of the schools visited only 15% of the electorate had voted. Tsipras had expressed optimism during the day that the people would vote for a stable government in the next four years “we will fight, not only within the country but also in Europe.” “We have shown to be able to open roads where none existed. We will overcome the difficulties,” he said, emphasizing the need for a strong mandate for the next four years. Schools opened at seven o’clock to close at seven o’clock, local time. Just under 10 million Greeks were called to vote. It is the third time this year that they have gone to the polls, after the legislative elections in January, in which they entrusted the government to a candidate who turned out to be a liar and a traitor: Alexis Tsipras. Tsipras agreed to a third bailout of French and German banks, a possibility that the Greek people had rejected at the referendum. His treasonous actions fractured his party, the leftist Syriza, which is why Tsipras was forced to call early elections. “I think it is much more useful to vote for ND, to vote again for that lying Tsipras that will destroy Greece if you let him”, said Evi Yorgópulu, a retired man who voted in a high school in Kipseli, a middle-class neighborhood where the lies of the former Prime Minister and leader of Syriza Alexis Tsipras, are not welcome anymore. Among the slow trickle of voters who came to the polls in the schools visited, it was difficult to find any of Syriza. Signs of a terrifying future Greece must not make a long list of substantial reforms throughout the new administration to satisfy the demands from the Troika and receive the more than 100 billion euros in the next three years. The Greek authorities will have to complete the list of demands given by the members of the Stability Mechanism: European Commission and European Central Bank creditors. If approved, the IMF will enter this third program. Among the long list of actions that the new Greek government are changes in Financial Governance, Reform Financial Entities, Liberalization of government programs, changes in the administration and the welfare state. Financial governance In September 2015, Greece will start a new process for selecting and appointing members of the Executive Council and the General Council of Financial Sustainability of Greek, which will be the entity in control of government finances. The Minister of Finance, the Bank of Greece, the European Commission and the Stability Mechanism will each have an observer in the selection panel which will be assisted by international consultants. The so-called Executive Council, which is more like a foreign government in control of the Greek government, shall be composed of six ‘independent’ experts of which three will be appointed by the European institutions, including the president who will have veto power, and other three members who will be appointed by the Greek authorities: two by the Minister of Finance and one by the Bank of Greece. Financial entities In August, the Greek authorities should have completed a comprehensive strategy for the financial system, which has deteriorated markedly since the end of 2014. It will have to focus on restoring financial stability and improve the viability of banks. It will attempt to normalize liquidity conditions and payments, and strengthen the capital of each entity. It should improve the governance of banks in order to return the property to the private sector in the medium term. It will also use its strength against the […]
