Greek Americans and This Weekend's Elections

Friday, June 15, 2012

Greek voters head to the polls this Sunday for the second time in less than two months after last month's elections failed to produce a government. The national parliamentary elections have far ranging impacts for not just Greece, but the future of the Eurozone. And this weekend's elections could be the most important in Greeks' lifetimes — something that's not lost on Greek Americans.

Peter Poulos is a third-generation Greek American. He's back in his ancestral homeland and is witnessing this exciting, and what some call nerve-wracking, process. Mark Lowen is the Athens correspondent for our partner the BBC.
