Abstract

The Greek parliament is holding a series of votes on electing the country’s next President. Although the position of President is largely ceremonial, the issue has created political uncertainty due to the present government lacking the required support to elect their designated candidate. Should they fail to appoint a new President by 29 December, the Greek constitution states that new parliamentary elections must be held, which could potentially be won by the left-wing opposition party Syriza. Eri Bertsou writes that with the government’s success far from assured, the vote could have far-reaching consequences for Greece and the Eurozone.
