How Europe reacted to Syriza’s win
Greece’s election has sharply divided Europe’s leaders, but which of them will work with the new anti-austerity party?
“It is the people’s hour,” the party tweeted, and Miguel Urbano, a Podemos leader in Athens to support Syriza said: “We have come to . . . see with our own eyes the change that is starting in Greece but which is happening for the people of the south of Europe.”
Another, Pablo Iglesias, said: "The Greeks are going to have a true Greek president and not a delegate of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, (a president) who will put the interests of his country and his people first.
"We will work to support Syriza but we will also work in Spain, acknowledging that it is a different economic and political reality."
