Tsipras Sworn In as Greek PM for Second Time in 2015

For the second time in 2015 Syriza leader Alexis Tsipras attended a ceremony in the Presidential Palace in Athens, Monday, to be officially sworn in as the prime minister of Greece. The ceremony was led by Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos who presented Tsipras with a formal mandate to govern earlier on Monday. On Sunday Tsipras' Syriza party won their second election in less than nine months, taking 35.54 percent of the votes compared to New Democracy's 27 percent. Syriza formed a coalition government with the Independent Greeks party after failing to secure an outright majority.
