Greeks face tough questions in next election

Greece will hold elections on January 25th. Last month the Greek prime minister dissolved parliament and called for new elections after the Greek parliament was unable to choose a new president. The far left opposition party Syriza is leading in the polls. The party opposes the economic bailout and austerity measures that have been put in place. Currently, more than 25 percent of Greeks are unemployed and millions are facing poverty.
