Tsipras reelected as SYRIZA leader
Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras was reelected unopposed on Sunday at the presidency of ruling leftist party SYRIZA at the end of the party’s 2nd Congress in Paleo Faliro, Athens.
Tsipras received the vote of 93.54 percent of delegates, with only 210 of them not voting for him to remain at the helm of the party he steered into office.
“The renewal of confidence in me constitutes a renewal of responsibility for a SYRIZA that is more massive, more inclusive, more efficient in the difficult battles awaiting us, for a Greece of justice and prosperity,” the PM wrote on Twitter after his reelection.
