Greeks will hold elections soon because their parliament failed to elect a new president. Some Greek citizens say they are not looking forward to the elections. Suzanna Steiner is one of them. She says the vote should not be happening now. It is the worst time for the economy and for security, she says, and everyone is unhappy. Dakis Voultsis is a businessman who agrees with Suzanna Steiner. He says the government should have been left to do its work. But, he says, now that early elections are set for January 25, Greeks will have to decide whom to vote for. The New Democratic Party of Prime Minister Antonis Samaras controls what has been the ruling coalition in Greece. But the Syriza Party is more popular in opinion surveys. Syriza says that if it wins control of parliament, “austerity will be history.” For years, the government has cut spending in an effort to solve a major debt crisis. Alexis Tsipras is the leader of Syriza. He says the new election will be the beginning of the end for the current leadership. He says the government sank Greece into poverty and worsened unemployment. The Syriza party says it wants to renegotiate two economic rescue plans — worth nearly $300 billion. The financial aid came from the European Commission, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund. They made the aid dependent on Greece enacting strong measures aimed at ending its financial problems. Opponents, however, say the spending cuts and tax increases have harmed the country. Greece now has an unemployment rate of more than 25 percent.
