Greece's First Female PM Likely Won't Be In Charge For Long
Supreme Court Judge Vassiliki Thanou will head the interim government until the September elections.By Kate Grumke | August 28, 2015
When Vassiliki Thanou was sworn in as Greece's prime minister she became the first woman to hold that post. Before this, she was a supreme court judge.
But she won't be prime minister for long — she was appointed to head the government until Greece can hold snap elections in about a month — probably on September 20. (Video via ERT)
This comes a week after Greece's former prime minister, Alexis Tsipras, resigned from his post to force elections. Most predictions say he will likely be reelected, and he's hoping that will give him a mandate on accepting bailout terms on Greece's debt.
