Greek Politics with Katerina Sokou

By Andrea Kendall-Taylor, Carisa Nietsche and Katerina Sokou

Nonresident Senior Fellow at the Atlantic Council, Kathimerini and Skai TV Washington Correspondent Katerina Sokou joins Andrea Kendall-Taylor and Carisa Nietsche to discuss the snap Greek elections set for July. PM Alexis Tsipras’ Syriza rode a left-wing populist surge in 2015 but has since stepped back from electoral promises and commitments. The Greek public responded by treating the latest EU parliamentary elections as a referendum on Tsipras’ government, forcing him to call an early election after Syriza came in behind the New Democracy party. Nonetheless, with Golden Dawn losing all but two if its EU parliament seats, Tsipras losing his coalition partner over the Prespas Agreement, and New Democracy surging in the polls, Greek politics are far from being settled.
