- SYRIZA’s landslide is definitely something many media and political analysts would not expect. Over 900 correspondents from European and international media were in Athens these last weeks to cover one of the most interesting and crucial elections in the Union. Why? Because the radical left party of SYRIZA, a party that until 2010 was around 5-7%, achieved to immensely increase its electoral appeal, reaching around 37% and making history in Greece. In the center of the debate was the economic program of SYRIZA, with the majority of media correspondents struggling to clear up what the priorities and policy planning of the new government are.
