The consensus between the main parties on EU related reforms will continue, although powerful interest groups and much of the public are likely to resist the fiscal and structural alterations required to meet the bloc's budgetary and debt criteria. Public support for EU membership has already fallen.

The four-party coalition, led by the Social Democratic Party (SDP), which came to power in December 2011, is showing growing signs of strain and division. The need to pursue fiscal consolidation will further strain relationships. Public confidence in the political elite will remain low, and social and ethnic tensions are likely to persist.

A general election is not due until late 2015 or early 2016. With economic growth remaining elusive, and the unemployment rate rising, the appeal of fringe parties and extra-parliamentary protest groups will increase. However, an early election is not part of The Economist Intelligence Unit's core scenario.
