Antonis Samaras as Greece Prime Minister
Antonis Samaras has been sworn in as the new prime minister. He is the head of the conservative New Democracy party. Wednesday's swearing-in took place just minutes after Greece's socialist PASOK party announced that the country has a new government. Nearly seven weeks of political uncertainty which threatened to plunge Europe deeper into a financial crisis with global repercussions is now ended. Samaras is a hawkish former foreign minister who has vowed to revise a "torturous" EU-IMF bailout deal. He has also vowed to rid the country of undocumented migrants.
