Greece is headed for yet another political crisis. On Monday the Greek Parliament rejected the prime minister’s nominee for president, forcing the country into early general elections on Jan. 25.

The upheaval comes just four years after the country accepted its first international bailout and almost single-handedly sent the global economy into a tailspin.
