So fun they’re doing it again?

With finals, I’ve been a bit busy during the same time all those elections hit across Europe.  Since I still am playing catch up on my work, here’s a video from STRATFOR on the elections in Greece, France, and Germany.

 

France, of course, now has a socialist president, Germany has seen a strong showing from pirates, and Greece elected a radical party who were unable to form a government…hence the voting Take 2 Greece is currently involved in.

If you are interested in learning more about this recent trend in Germany towards support for small parties, check out this earlier post from a student guest blogger about the changing nature of Germany’s party system.
