Greece’s crisis negotiations are rolling on, and the country’s radical new government is currently still at loggerheads with Europe’s most important decision-makers.
Greece wants to renegotiate a more favourable bailout deal from Europe, with less austerity. Europe’s finance ministers want the country’s current bailout to continue. Without a deal, Greece’s international credit runs dry at the end of February.
But who has Greece got fighting in its corner, and who is the new government going up against?
There are a handful of key decision-makers in the process, some of whom are loud and prominent, and some of whom take a background role.
