Alexis Tsipras

Alexis Tsipras

 

 

A legislative election took place in Greece on 25 January 2015 to elect all 300 members to the Hellenic Parliament in accordance with the constitution. The election was held earlier than scheduled due to the failure of the Greek parliament to elect a new president on 29 December 2014.

 

Left-wing party SYRIZA won a legislative election for the first time ever, securing 149 out of the 300 seats, 2 seats short of an absolute majority

 

Alexis Tsipras was sworn in as Prime Minister of Greece on 26 January 2015, after reaching a coalition agreement with ANEL.
