The Coalition of the Radical Left [15] ( Greek : Συνασπισμός Ριζοσπαστικής Αριστεράς , translit  Synaspismós Rizospastikís Aristerás ), mostly known by the syllabic abbreviation Syriza(a Greek adverb meaning “from the roots” or “radically”, [16] and sometimes stylized SY.RIZ.A. , Greek : ΣΥΡΙΖΑ , pronounced [siɾiza] ), is a left-wing political party in Greece , founded in 2004 as a coalition of left-wing and radical left parties. It is the largest party in theHellenic Parliament , with party chairman Alexis Tsipras serving as Prime Minister of Greece from 26 January 2015 to 20 August 2015 and from 21 September 2015 to present.

The party colors are red (left-wing politics), green (green politics), and purple (social movements). [17] The current leader of the party and Prime Minister is Alexis Tsipras .



Although Syriza was launched before the 2004 legislative election , the roots of the process can be traced back to “Space for Dialogue for the Unity and Common Action of the Left” ( Greek : Χώρος Διαλόγου για την Ενότητα και Κοινή Δράση της Αριστεράς ) in 2001. [18] The “Space” was made up of various organizations of the Greek Left that, despite different ideological and historical backgrounds, had shared common political action in several important issues that had arisen in Greece at the end of the 1990s, such as the Kosovo War , privatizations , social and civil rights, [19] etc.

The “Space” provided by:

  • Against the neoliberal reform of the pension and social security systems
  • Opposition to new anti-terrorism legislation
  • The preparation of the Greek participation at the 2001 international demonstration in Genoa . [20]
  • Review of the role of the European Union and the redetermination of Greece’s position on it.

Even though the “Space” was not a political organization, purpose Rather year endeavor to bring together the parts and organisms That Attended, it gave birth to Some electoral alliances for the local elections of 2002 , [21] The Most successful being white the one led by Manolis Glezos for the super-prefecture of Athens – Piraeus . The “Space” also contributed to the Greek Social Forum, [22] part of the larger European Social Forum .

2004 general election

The defining moment for the birth of Syriza came with the legislative election of 2004 . Most of the participants of the “Space” sought to develop a common platform that could lead to an electoral alliance . [23] This led to the eventual formation of the Coalition of the Radical Left, in January 2004. [24]

The parts that had formed the Coalition of the Radical Left in January 2004 were the:

  • Coalition of Left, of Movements and Ecology (Synaspismos or SYN)
  • Renewing Communist Ecological Left (AKOA)
  • Internationalist Workers Left (DEA)
  • Movement for the United in Action Left (KEDA) (a splinter group of the Communist Party of Greece )
  • Active Citizens (a Political Organization with Manolis Glezos )
  • Other independent left-wing groups or activists

Although the Communist Organization of Greece (KOE) had participated in the “Space”, it was decided to take part in the Coalition. why? [25]

In the election, the coalition gathered 241,539 votes (3.3% of the total) and elected six members to parliament. All six were members of Synaspismos, the largest of the coalition parties. This led to much tension within the coalition.

Crisis and revitalization

Former President of SYRIZA, Alekos Alavanos , speaking in Athens.

After the 2004 election, the smaller parties accused Yannis Banias of the AKOA could take his seat. [26] Tension built up and resulted in the split of the Internationalist Workers Left and the formation of Kokkino , both of which remained within the coalition. The frame of the crisis in SYRIZA was the reluctance of Synaspismos to adopt and maintain the political agreement for a clear denial of ” center-left politics”. quote needed ]

Three months after the 2004 legislative elections, Synaspismós thing to run independently of the rest of the coalition for the 2004 European elections and some of the smaller parts of the coalition supported the feminist Women for Another Europe ( Greek : Γυναίκες για μια Άλλη Ευρώπη ) list . [27]

The crisis ended in December 2004 with the 4th convention of Synaspismos, when a large majority within the party voted for the continuation of the coalition. [28] This change of attitude Was further Top Intensified with the election of Alekos Alavanos, a staunch supporter of the coalition, [29] as president of Synaspismos, after-icts form leader, Nikos Konstantopoulos , stepped down.

The coalition was further strengthened by the organization in May 2006 of the 4th European Social Forum in Athens , and by a number of largely successful election campaigns, such as those in Athens and Piraeus, during the 2006 local elections . The coalition ticket in the municipality of Athens was headed by Alexis Tsipras , proposed by Alavanos who declared Synaspismos’ “opening to the new generation”.

2007 legislative election

On 16 September 2007, Syriza gained a vote in the 2007 Greek legislative election . Opinion polls had already indicated that the Coalition was expected to make significant gains in the election, with predictions ranging from 4% to 5% of the electorate. [30]

Prior to the election, on 22 June, the parties to the agreement. The Coalition of the Coalition of the Radical Left, the Coalition of the Coalition, and the Coalition of the Coalition .

The Coalition of 2007 has also expanded from its original composition in 2004. On 20 June 2007, the Communist Organization of Greece (KOE) announced its participation in the Coalition. [31] On August 21, the EnvironmentalistEcological Intervention (Greek: Οικολογική Παρέμβαση ) also joined, [32] and on 22 August 2007, the Democratic Social Movement (DIKKI) also announced its participation in the Coalition. [33]

On September 2, the Areios Pagos refused to include the title of DIKKI in the Syriza electoral alliance, claiming that the internal procedures followed by DIKKI were flawed. This was criticized by SYRIZA and DIKKI. [34]


Six party leaders’ televised debate ahead of the 2009 Greek legislative elections. Alexis Tsipras , the leader of Syriza, is in the center.

On 27 November 2007, Alavanos announced that, for private reasons, he would not be seeking to renew his presidency of Synaspismos. [35] The 5th party congress of Synaspismas elected Alexis Tsipras , a municipal councillor for the municipality of Athens , as party president on 10 February 2008. Alavanos retained the parliamentary leadership of Syriza, however, as Tsipras was not at that time a member of parliament. Tsipras achieved considerable popularity with the Greek electorate, which led to a significant increase in support for Syriza in polls – up to 18 percent at its peak. [36]

At the end of June 2008, Xekinima announced that it would join the coalition. [37]

During the run-up to the 2009 European elections Syriza, amid turbulent internal developments, saw its poll share decrease to 4.7%, with the result that only one SYRIZA candidate (Nikos Hountis) was elected to the European Parliament. This is a new chapter in the history of President Alekos Alavanos from his seat in the Greek parliament, a resignation that was, however, withdrawn a few days later. [38]

In the 2009 legislative election Held on 4 October 2009, SYRIZA won 4.6% of the vote (Slightly below showing ict 2007), returning 13 MPs to the Hellenic Parliaments. The incoming MPs included Tsipras, who took over Syriza’s parliamentary leader.

In June 2010, the Ananeotiki (“Renewing Wing”) of radical social democrats in Synapses split away from the party, at the same time leaving Syriza. This reduced Syriza’s parliamentary group to 9 MPs. The 4 MPs who left a new party, the Democratic Left (DIMAR).

2012 general elections

Inauguration of Lucas Papademos in November 2011, Syriza gained popularity in the polls, as did the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) and DIMAR. Opinion polls in the run-up to the May 2012 election showed Syriza with 10-12% support. [39] The Minor Unitary Movement ( PASOK splinter group) also joined the coalition in March 2012.

In first , the party polled over 16% and quadrupled its number of seats, becoming the second largest party in parliament, behind New Democracy (ND). [40] After the election, Tsipras was invited by the president of Greece to try to form a government, but failed to form a government owing to a lack of parliamentary numbers. Subsequently, Tsipras rejected a proposal by the president to join a coalition government with the center-right and center-left parties. [41]

For the second 2012 legislative election on 17 June 2012, SYRIZA re-registered as a single party (adding the “United Social Front” moniker) instead of a coalition, in order to be eligible to receive the 50 “bonus” seats given to the largest polling party under the Greek electoral system. [42] However, Syriza increased its share of the vote to just under 27%, New Democracy polled 29.8% and claimed the bonus. With 71 seats, Syriza became the main opposition party to a coalition government of ND, PASOK, and DIMAR. Tsipras subsequently formed the Shadow Cabinet of Alexis Tsipras in July 2012. [43]

Unitary party

In July 2013, a Syriza congress was held to discuss the organization of the party. Important results include a decision in principle to dissolve the participating parties in Syriza in favor of a unitary party. However, they have been relocated to allow for their positions. Tsipras was confirmed as chairman with 74% of the vote. Delegatesριστερή Πλάτφορμα, led by Panayiotis Lafazanis, securedριστερή Πλάτφορμα, 30% (60) of the seats on Syriza’s central committee. [44] A modest success was also claimed by the “Communist Platform” (Greek section of the International Marxist Tendency), who managed to get two members elected to the party’s central committee.[45]

2014 elections

Local elections and elections to the European Parliament were held in May 2014. In the 2014 European elections on May 25, 2014, Syriza reached first place with 26.5% of vote, ahead of New Democracy at 22.7%. The position in the local elections was less clear-cut, due to the number of “non-party” and independent contending for office. Syriza’s success was the election of Rena Dourou to the Attica Regional governorship with 50.8% of the second-round vote over the incumbent Yiannis Sgouros. The biggest disappointment was the failure of Gabriel Sakellaridis to win the Athens Mayoralty election, being beaten in the second ballot by Giorgos Kaminis with 51.4% to his 48.6%.
