The essential facts that marked Greece in recent months:

The fall of the Government of Antonis Samaras

The Greek Government situation was, at the end of 2014, catastrophic. The coalition Government, led by Antonis Samaras, the new democracy Party, "died", slowly, as if it were the layoffs, mostly due to disagreements about the negotiations on the austerity plan with the ' troika '.

The fatal blow was the failure of Antonis Samaras, the Conservative leader, to elect its candidate for President of the Republic. The former European Commissioner Stavros Dimas, not collected the 180 necessary votes in Parliament and the Government fell.

The fall of the apogee Samaris Tsipras

Antonis Samaras has called elections for January 25, the day that would mark a turnaround in Greece.

Of dissatisfaction and revolt of the Greeks, visible in the demonstrations have multiplied for many months, mainly on the streets of Athens, the Syriza. A formation of the more radical wing of the Greek left that purports to deal with international creditors and fight for the interests of a Greece tired of austerity.

Packaged by the words of hope of Alexis Tsipras, the country turns to the left and this almost illustrious unknown passes manage destinations of the country, it is believed that believer that could pass through the "Cape of storms" and come, unharmed, to a successful conclusion. But the front had the last revision of the second rescue program.

A victory in downslope

The victory of Syriza is not expressive. Alexis Tsipras finds himself thrust into a coalition, the only way to govern a country eager for change, with most. Against all expectations the Syryza choose the conservative party and Independent Greek nationalist partner. In common the two formations have the anti-troika position and against austerity but, in all the rest, oppose totally, suffice it to say that the Greeks appear Independent of the Division â€" by discord over the ' troika ' â€" within the new democracy.

When presented his Government program to Parliament in February, Tsipras announced the gradual increase of the minimum wage to EUR 751, until 2016.

The approach to international creditors would be also different. Convinced at the time, Tsipras said: "we have a realistic plan and a strong bargaining tactic. We don't serve other interests other than those of the Greeks ".

With his Finance Minister, Yianis Varoufakis, opted to follow a line of negotiations with international lenders totally different from his predecessors. Proposed-if renegotiate quickly the austerity measures, prerequisites for Greece to close the second rescue program and receive financial aid. Since the summer of 2014 to the country via "a penny" from its creditors.

But this will be the toughest and exhausting battle Alexis Tsipras ever lived. While the Greek Prime Minister doesn't want to disappoint his electorate, and drop by the land promises made to him by another its creditors do not see with good eyes the solutions presented by the Syriza.

But ' things ' are also flourishing Alexis Tsipras current is too strong and the Chief Executive has not as Greek paddle against her. Varoufakis eventually resign six July the country needs, urgently need money and is against all expectations that, days later, is negotiated a new rescue program to Greece, the third, 86 billion, followed by new measures of austerity.

A decision accompanied by a division within the Syriza. Some of the members do not agree with the agreement signed and leaves the party. A new training and, again without most, at the end of August Alexis Tsipras resigns to the Greeks. In his speech to the nation Tsipras said:

"We used our resistance as far as it was possible. I have a clean conscience about how we conduct this whole process. We comply with the vote of the people. We have faced strong pressures, say terrorists, but we took the case of Greece to the world and our country is today an example for those who are in the same situation. (…) I know we didn't get everything that we promised the Greek people, but saved the country, telling Europe that austerity should end. "
