Sunday, 3:59 AM

The snap election in Lesotho came six months after an attempted coup plunged the small southern African nation into a political crisisVote results were trickling in Sunday in the southern African mountain kingdom of Lesotho after a snap election held to resolve a political crisis triggered by an alleged coup bid last year. Saturday's parliamentary poll, which was called two years ahead of schedule, passed without incident according to observers. "In Lesotho, we don't count the votes electronically, we count them manually," said IEC official Rethabile Pholo. Lesotho has been in crisis since June 2014, when Prime Minister Thomas Thabane suspended parliament in June 2014 to avoid a motion that would have seen him ousted from power after his fragile coalition government fell apart.

Despite Greece, euro zone is turning the corner

Sunday, 2:09 AM

A Greek and a European flag flutter outside the Greek embassy in BrusselsThe latest episode of Greece's debt crisis has revived doubts about the long-term survival of the euro, nowhere more so than in London, Europe's main financial center and a hotbed of Euroskepticism. The heightened risk of a Greek default and/or exit comes just as there are signs that the euro zone is turning the corner after seven years of financial and economic crisis and that its perilous internal imbalances may be starting to diminish. A last-ditch deal to extend Greece's bailout for four months after much kicking and screaming between Athens and Berlin did little to ease fears that the euro zone's weakest link may end up defaulting on its official European creditors. U.S. economist Milton Friedman's aphorism - "What is unsustainable will not be sustained" - is cited frequently by those who believe market forces will eventually overwhelm the political will that holds the euro together.
