World Country Greece

About the world country Greece, its location, size, population, and who is in power.



Location: The southern section of the Balkan Peninsula, plus surrounding islands--including Crete--in southeastern Europe. Size: 50,944 sq. mi. (131,944 sq. km.). Population: 9,590,000.

Who Really Rules: Greece's multiparty parliamentary democracy is currently governed by Prime Minister Konstandinos Karamanlis's New Democracy party. In elections scheduled for late 1981, New Democracy is expected to face stiff opposition from the left, especially Andreas Papandreou's Panhellenic Socialist Movement (PASOK).

Greece is scheduled to join the European Common Market in 1981, and European companies are expected to swallow many Greek enterprises. Unlike other recent additions to the Common Market, Greece never held a referendum on the issue. Should PASOK and other leftist parties win a parliamentary majority, they could reverse the decision.
