Greek government formation, January
Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Friday achieved consensus with some party leaders on his government's plan to grant Greeks living abroad full voting rights but not with the leader of the main leftist opposition Alexis Tsipras, who rejected the basis of the initiative, which is the equality of each vote.
Two months after his defeat in the general election, SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras is expected to speak at the Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF) and offer a detailed critique of the first two months of the new government's activities, as well as presenting his and SYRIZA's intentions for the future.
Watching developments in Britain, my mind goes back to the near-fatal and certainly costly Greek summer of 2015. The turmoil surrounding the bailout referendum called by the leftist-led administration of Alexis Tsipras now feels like a distant memory, or rather like a nightmare one would rather forget.
