Europe faces Greek headache whoever wins vote


BRUSSELS: Whoever wins Greece’s general election on Sunday, Europe will have to take urgent action to tackle the country’s mountain of debt before it buries the rest of the eurozone, analysts say. Alexis Tsipras, head of the far-left Syriza party that leads in the polls, has alarmed European Union capitals by pledging to ditch austerity measures and renegotiate the debt left by two huge international bailouts. The risk of Greece crashing out of the euro is unlikely irrespective of the result, analysts say, as Athens and Brussels would probably strike a deal despite the fiery rhetoric on both sides.
