ATHENS – Greece’s ruling Radical Left SYRIZA party continues to be split over whether the government should seek early elections if negotiations with international lenders stay stalled.

Unable to control his lawmakers and ministers, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has said there won’t be new polls but he keeps being contradicted by dissenters.

The latest was Deputy Social Security Minister Dimitris Stratoulis, a member of the most radical element in the party who want Greece to leave the Eurozone and go its own way rather than accept more austerity in return for continued aid from the troika of the European Union-International Monetary Fund-European Central Bank (EU-IMF-ECB).

“The lenders want to impose hard measures. If they do not back down from this package of blackmail the government … will have to seek alternative solutions, elections,” he said without explaining how that would solve anything or help Greece.
