Merkel has become the face of austerity in a country suffering a fifth year of recession, seen in Greece as mainly due to German-led conditions attached to emergency loans. While Samaras has called the chancellor's visit a "very positive development," opposition and union leaders are planning to use her presence to capture Greeks' anger and frustration.
