Greece: New Interim Government

After the 6 May general elections in Greece and the failure of political parties to form even a coalition government, the interim government to be sworn on May 17 under Prime Minister Panagiotis Pikrammenos will lead the country to election again on June 17. Netizens are commenting on these events and joking about the chosen PM's surname on Twitter, using the hashtags #pikrammenos and #pikramenos, which means “embittered”.
