Greek Politics with Katerina Sokou

By Andrea Kendall-Taylor, Carisa Nietsche and Katerina Sokou

Kathimerini and Skai TV Washington Correspondent Katerina Sokou joins Andrea Kendall-Taylor and Carisa Nietsche to discuss the snap Greek elections set for July.

The Greek public responded by treating the latest EU parliamentary elections as a referendum on Tsipras’ government, and the loss of his coalition partner over the Prespas agreement forced him to call an early election. Nonetheless, with Golden Dawn losing all of its EU parliament seats and the New Democracy party surging in the polls, Greek politics are far from being settled.
