Clear majority in Athens also good for EU

A victory for former prime minister Alexis Tsipras in the September elections would stabilise not only Greece but all of Europe, the online edition of the centre-left news magazine Polityka believes: "Currently there is no one he could lose to, because Greece sees no alternative to him. What does this new turn of political events mean for Europe? Of course any election campaign will take its toll on the economy, but that's no reason to panic. There's a strong likelihood that Tsipras will receive a stable majority. That could improve the mood in Greece, which not so long ago was threatened with bankruptcy. And in time the country's relations with Europe could also normalise. What Greece needs most right now is calm to help it slowly emerge from the crisis."
