“With the victory of the conservative Nea Dimokratia in the parliamentary elections Greece is poised for a change of government”, writes the European euro|topics press review. “Today, Monday, party chief Kyriakos Mitsotakis is to be sworn in as premier. He has promised tax cuts and investment. While commentators can understand why Syriza was defeated they are nonetheless sceptical about the new government’s chances of success.”
In today’s press review euro|topics is quoting ABC from Spain, Formiche.net from Italy, TVXS from Greece, Die Presse from Austria, and Dagens Nyheter from Sweden. The comments range from “The end of a misguided adventure” and “Syriza has survived” to “Still not a modern country”. You can find all comments on the website of euro|topics here.
