Greek Opposition Leader Antonis Samaras Resigns as New Democracy Head


Antonis Samaras, head of the New Democracy party and former prime minister of Greece has resigned from his position as head of Greece’s main opposition, following a landslide victory of the “No” vote in the Greek referendum.

Alexis Tsipras’ Syriza party swept to power in January after a decisive victory over Samaras’ party, which was viewed by many in Syriza as destructive for agreeing to harsh bailout terms set forth by Greece’s creditors.

    I actually believe that this resignation is a smart thing. Let Tsipras own this situation and let’s see where it all goes. You cannot reason with a society that refuses to work it’s way out of a problem and instead looks to the Handout. It’s a shame Greece should be flourishing with tourists something they lost years ago. It’s a shame Greece should be trying to shed it’s self imposed image of poverty especially those who can work and be productive. It’s a shame Greece should be teaching it’s children to understand common decency and love of family first country second there is no room for a secular population. The worst is yet to come.
