instability-ballotbox

Political risk is a nebulous term that occasionally achieves painful clarity – for example, during the weeks following Greek elections on May 6. With the country’s second bail-out signed off by eurozone finance ministers two months earlier, the Greek electorate had a chance to make a statement about the accompanying austerity conditions – it became a protest vote, draining power from the incumbent coalition government and threatening the country’s future as part of the eurozone (see box).
