Possibility of Greek exit from eurozone

Published 14 May 2012 17:41

A final round of coalition talks are set to take place on Tuesday for Greece's political parties in a final bid by President Karolos Papoulias to broker a deal for a coalition government and break the deadlock of elections that have left the country in political limbo. The far left Syriza party has refused to participate in the talks. This has made the prospect of a parliament set against austerity a real possibility for the country, and now, also being discussed by the European Central Bank's governing council. Al Jazeera's Nadim Baba reports.

  • A bit of a mess you could say. It is the ordinary Greek man on the street who will lose out financially big time here. It is him you need to feel sorry for, politicians are a bunch of useless bastards.

    • @Bawbag The ordinary Greek is master in avoiding to pay taxes. Not to talk about scams like getting money because of blindness, while they ain't. Many examples of this kind of things. Not only their government makes a mess......

    • @p8urbyk5 I feel sorry for the people who arent scamming, the proud people who have worked all their days and now have pensions that are worthless.

    • @p8urbyk5 You're talking about clearly exceptional cases as if the Greeks are scumming or evading taxes altogether and as if the debt crisis is a Greek phenomenon. That's pure ignorance my friend and if a small player like Greek collapses imagine what could happen to your country (or the US or England) whose national debt is far bigger... Oh you'll probably blame it on the lazy Greeks...
