Gloves come off as Greek elections loom

Jan 06, 2019 - 3:59 PM

With the ballot scheduled for October but expected as early as March, hostility between the ruling leftist Syriza party and the frontrunning New Democracy conservatives has hit fever pitch

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, wearing a tie, waves before addressing the parliamentary group of leftist Syriza and coalition partner Independent Greeks in Athens, on June 22, 2018, after Eurozone financial ministers have agreed to complete the eight-year bailout program for Greece. Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on June 22, 2018 said his country was "turning a page" after eurozone ministers declared its crisis over as they granted Athens debt relief under a bailout exit strategy. The eurozone ministers' agreement comes nearly a decade after Athens finances spun out of control, sparking three bailouts and threatening the country's euro membership. Tsipras, who hates ties and hasn't worn one since becoming prime minister in 2015, had pledged at the time he would wear one "only when (Greece's) debt is cut".  Milos Bicanski / AFP
