Tsipras expected to meet party leaders on electoral reform
Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras will meet with Greek party leaders this week to discuss potential changes to the country’s electoral law, according to reports Sunday.
Tsipras is said to be in favor of a simple proportional representation system. With his government’s popularity damaged by a wave of austerity measures demanded by creditors, the premier is reportedly keen to effect some changes that will give back a voice to the people and that are more in keeping with the ideals of his leftist SYRIZA party.
A second change being mulled by Tsipras is a change of law that would allow the Greek president to be elected by the people and not by Parliament, as is currently the case.
