The era of left-wing populism is over in Greece. The center-right New Democracy party won the first national elections there since the country exited a bailout regime a year ago. It's a clear rejection of the austerity policies favored by the ruling, left-leaning Syriza party. New Democracy's Kyriakos Mitsotakis will be Greece's new prime minister. He promises to rebrand the country and change its image as Europe's problem child in the wake of an eight-year economic depression. He wants to reignite the economy by slashing taxes and regulations, while attracting investment. Mitsotakis will be sworn in as prime minister later today.
