Costas Lapavitsas, an economics professor at London’s School of Oriental and African Studies, believes a confrontation is looming between a Syriza government and the EU and consequently Syriza desperately needs solidarity.  A Syriza government could spur on other anti-austerity forces across the continent. It is conceivable that Podemos could assume power in Spain later in 2015.
