Greece Swears In New Prime Minister
Greece swore in a new prime minister Wednesday after seven weeks of unstable leadership that weakened Greece's already fragile political and economic state, according to The New York Times.
Antonis Samaras, the leader of the New Democracy party, is Greece's new prime minister. He was sworn in by Archbishop Ieronymos of the Greek Orthodox Church.
Samaras will work with two other parties that agreed to form a coalition.
With Greece on the verge of economic collapse, the fate of Samaras's government may be short-lived. He said he hopes to give Greeks "tangible hope."
Samaras will attempt to gain a majority coalition in Parliament in order to safeguard against the far-left Syriza party who may resist the new Prime Minister's plans for the country.
