SYRIZA’s victory is both major and historic.
A party from the greater Left has won the elections and rose to power for the first time since the formation of the modern Greek state and will have the opportunity to govern Greece.
The decade-old unrequited desires have been satisfied for generations and generations of our fellow compatriots on the Left.
Without a doubt and given the historic burdens and experiences, the choice of the Greek people, is unique and rather special.
In order for this to happen, political fences and ideological dams had to be knocked over and family-related conflicts had to be overcome.
All of this took place under the pressure from an unprecedented financial crisis, which disorganized the parties of power, depreciated their leaders and set the conditions for Mr. Tsipras ascent.
The effects of SYRIZA’s victory cannot yet be estimated.
One can confidently say though that Mr. Tsipras’ electoral win is going to change Greek politics from the ground up.
His party is recognized as a source of doubt of not just the domestic financial system, but the dominant understanding prevailing in Europe. It is being recognized internationally as such, which is why the European and international media are so interested.
In any case, Mr. Tsipras’ win is going to cause to tectonic changes to the country’s political system.
More so if he manages to come to an agreement with the European leaders.
In this case he will literally rule hegemonically. No party and no leader can become indifferent and not carry out changes and quests.
Furthermore, we must not ignore the fact that Mr. Tsipras is only 40 years old and as such he is the youngest Prime Minister in Europe at present. Without a doubt he will get more young people involved in politics, as he demonstrated when he called for young scientists to return to Greece.
Beyond everything else, the demand for renewal will dominate the country’s political life.
Undoubtedly we are entering a new era. It remains to be seen if it will be beneficial for the country and its people.
