Greece: Syriza is splitting up
The Greek party Syriza is now splitting up, as 25 of the left party's 149 MPs broke out of the party and formed their own faction.

The new faction is led by former energy minister Panagiotis Lafazanis (pictured) who believe that the policy of Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has not been sufficiently leftist, reports AP.

Above all, the financial settlement with the euro countries, which the members of the new faction are unhappy with.

The politicians in the faction believe that the other euro countries should grant Greece new loans without having to try to get the public finances in balance by raising taxes, cuts and sales.

Even before the new parliamentary group was announced, Alexis Tsipras had already declared that he would resign as prime minister. He has now called for new elections to see if he is entrusted to continue to lead the country or not.
