Left-wing Greek leader Alexis Tsipras, who is trying to form a government
Chefe da coalização de esquerda grega, Alexis Tsipras.
Greek voters rejection of pro-bailout parties is “extremely worrying”, Foreign Affairs Minister Alain Juppé said Wednesday. Opponents of the austerity imposed by the EU-IMF bailout package are trying to form a government after the election on Sunday, the same day that Nicolas Sarkozy was voted out as president of France.
The Greek election result showed “an increase of extremes”, Juppé told Europe 1 radio, adding that that is “extremely worrying”.
Syriza leader, Alexis Tsipras, said Tuesday that the election result “clearly nullified” Greece’s loan agreement, raising speculation that the country will leave the euro.
“The questioning of the treaties, which were painstakingly negotiated … risks sparking turbulence that will be difficult to control,” said Juppé, who went on to attend the last meeting of the outgoing cabinet of President Nicolas Sarkozy on Wednesday morning.
