    New political equations in Greece

    Greece is one of the countries that continues to face a financial crisis. The crisis has begun in Greece since 2007 and continues. The recent general election in Greece has led to the defeat of the leftist government. As predicted, despite the adoption of austerity policies for 11 years, Greece is still one of the most austerity-stricken countries in the EU. Although Greece was supposed to emerge from the bailout by 2012, and step towards economic prosperity, heavy debts prevented the realization of this process. The European Union, the European Central Bank, and the International Monetary Fund loaned Greece a total of €289bn ($330bn) in three programs, in 2010, 2012 and 2015.
