Venizelos new PASOK leader


Published

Evangelos Venizelos was elected the new leader of the Panhellenic Socialist Movement (PASOK) on Sunday. He replaces George Papandreou who resigned last year following a series of blunders over the Greek debt crisis.

Venizelos, the current Finance Minister and man who led the talks with international investors into a debt restructuring was the only candidate. He has a tough task to win back support for PASOK after its vote collapsed last year. Currently it trails the centre right New Democracy (ND) led by Antonis Samaras.
