With election near, Tsipras faces widening rift within Syriza| Reuters

ATHENS Greek leftist leader Alexis Tsipras has seen off a threat from far-left rebels but his anti-austerity-turned-pro-bailout Syriza party is struggling through a deeply divisive identity crisis weeks before a national election. Just hours after Tsipras resigned as prime minister last week to pave the way for early elections, a sixth of Syriza's lawmakers broke away to form their own party to fight the 86 billion euro bailout package their former boss signed up to. The break-up initially allowed Tsipras to clear out his party's ranks of the vocal, anti-bailout faction that openly defied him in parliament. #Business #Technology #Middle East #science #markets

Nationalist and pro-Kurdish opposition given Turkish cabinet posts| Reuters

ANKARA Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu appointed nationalist and pro-Kurdish opposition politicians to an interim power-sharing cabinet on Friday, but left his finance and economy ministers unchanged in a team dominated by ruling party loyalists. Feridun Sinirlioglu, undersecretary at the foreign ministry since 2009, was named as the new foreign minister, a critical post as the NATO member takes on a frontline role in the U.S.-led coalition against Islamic State. #Business #India #Technology #Middle East #Europe #Argentina #United Kingdom
