ATHENS — The original Syriza-Independent Greeks coalition lasted a mere seven months. In that short time, it managed to turn projections of relatively robust growth into another recession, demolish the Greek banking system, and bring the country to the brink of a euro exit.
Alexis Tsipras’ decision to pull back from the brink, capitulate to Greece’s European partners and sign another austerity-and-privatization-heavy bailout led to a split in Syriza and yet another early election (Greece’s fourth in less than four years).
