From December 2012 to December 2015 he wasVice-President of the Party of the European Left.

In the elections of January the 25th 2015 SYRIZA wone the elections receiving 36% of the vote and on January the 26th 2015 he was sworn in as Prime Minister of the Hellenic Republic.

He retook office on September the 21st after securing a second consecutive election victory with 35% of the vote.
