    The Greek government has confirmed that parliamentary elections will be held on May 6.

    BBC News - Greece PM Papademos announces 6 May election

    This will be a major test for Europe. Will moderate and democratic parties prevail, or will they be swept aside by extremists in response to the strong austerity measures?

    If extremists sweep aside the rational austerity measures, Greece will be the rock that sinks the good ship European Union.
