SYRIZA to test coalition with censure motion but victory unlikely
Despite the contentious austerity policies the Greek government has implemented since being elected in June 2012, its decision to shut down public broadcaster ERT has caused political waves like no other measure. This was underlined on Thursday, when SYRIZA submitted a censure motion to Parliament after riot police forced out the last ERT employees from the broadcaster's headquarters.
