La Razón, July 1, 2015
Right-leaning Spanish daily La Razón declared Wednesday that "the Greek contagion is Podemos." According to the Madrid-based newspaper, allowing the Spanish left-wing populist party Podemos to come into power could undermine Spain's economy just as it has begun to recover from a deep recession. Podemos was one of several anti-establishment parties to garner surprisingly strong support in last month's regional elections in Spain.
Governed by the Syriza party (which is allied with Podemos), Greece defaulted on a $1.5 billion payment to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) at midnight Wednesday, becoming the first Western country in to default on an IMF loan.
