(Reuters) – Greece’s conservatives said they are poised to form a coalition government with the Socialists on Tuesday, allowing the two parties that dominated politics for decades to share power despite a major anti-establishment election vote.
Conservative New Democracy leader Antonis Samaras promised to negotiate less punishing terms for Greece’s international bailout, after only narrowly beating a radical left-wing party which campaigned to scrap the austerity deal entirely.
A senior New Democracy official expected agreement soon on a new cabinet with the PASOK Socialists and possibly another smaller centre-left party following Sunday’s election, the second in as many months.
“We are going to clinch a deal tomorrow, we will form a government,” the official said late on Monday, declining to be named. “PASOK will participate more than symbolically … They will participate actively.”
…With an emboldened SYRIZA bloc led by former communist student leader Tsipras at the head of a powerful opposition, the new government could face protests soon after taking office. http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/06/18/greece-election-idUSL5E8HIIPU20120618
Many in Greece are outraged and in a near panic about how their national economy has been handled, yet many realize that getting out of the EU now will likely make matters worse.
The Bible itself teaches that Europe will have strong and weak parts (Daniel 2:41-43), reorganize (Revelation 17:12-13), and support a particular religion (Revelation 13). Europe already has strong and weak parts and keeps discussing a variety of forms of reorganization.
