The Greek Elections and the Strategic Debates within the Left

On September 21, Alexis Tsipras returned as prime minister, supported by a coalition between his party and the right-wing nationalist Anel party. It has been only two months since the massive victory of the “NO“ vote in the referendum on the third memorandum. This government, which assumed power as a left coalition, and ended up accepting the toughest structural adjustment plan yet imposed by foreign creditors, is now being given a "second opportunity". Syriza represented the “lesser evil” in the elections against the historical parties of New Democracy and Pasok, who are considered to be the authors of the tragedy that the Greek people are now living.
