Prime Minister Antonis Samaras has become the stabilizing figure during the Greek financial crisis. Now he’s facing a vote that may determine whether he becomes a transformational leader or another flawed transition in the nation’s perilous politics. [...]

Uncharted Territory

Because polls put Syriza short of winning an absolute majority, Tsipras would probably have to stitch together a coalition of his own to match the stability that Samaras forged with Pasok. This would represent more uncharted territory for Greece.

“It’s very unusual in the Greek political culture to have this kind of coalition,” said Janis Emmanouilidis, director of studies at the European Policy Centre in Brussels. “There has been a remarkable fiscal-consolidation effort in Greece over the past two years. This policy success stems from a degree of political stability that many thought wouldn’t be possible.”
