Greece elections: Your views
Greece will hold fresh elections on 17 June and a judge has been appointed to head an interim government.
People in Greece have withdrawn 3bn euros (£2.4bn; $3.8bn) from bank accounts over of fears for the future of the Greek economy and the possibility of a return to the drachma.
BBC News website readers have shared their thoughts about the political turmoil and uncertainty over the single currency.
George Tsampas, Chania
I intended to vote for Syriza but now I'm undecided.
The Syriza party appear to be making concessions to our European neighbours in a bid to stay in the euro. I think the only way forward now is to ditch the single currency and start again.
Greece will be hit hard and we may slip into recession for the next five to 10 years. I think it is better to have a brief period of financial pain which will help to shore up our future economy than have a long, drawn-out austerity policy which could go on for 30 years or indefinitely.
I do not think Greece will be reduced to the status of a third world country but I do think that many Greeks will lose their homes.
Home ownership is very high. About 70% of the population either own property or have a mortgage. The market has been built on sand or rather on cheap loans.
I own a small hotel and business has been brisk but like many people, I have personal debt too. I took out a mortgage and my loan was in Swiss francs, which was a competitive deal at the time. If we return to drachmas then my mortgage repayments will triple overnight, quadrupling our debt.
I'm disappointed with the Greek political system. We are the authors of our own financial troubles. Our draconian laws and red tape make us unattractive to investors.
If things turn out disastrously for Greece I'll return to the UK. I have two master's degrees and I used to work as a manager at The London Marriott Hotel Maida Vale. I'm fortunate, I have other options.
Julie Alamanou, Xlomos, Corfu
I used to live in Essex, UK but I have dual nationality after having lived here in Greece for the past 30 years. I am going to vote for Pasok as I believe they are the best hope this country has.
When I first moved here things were very different - there was no national health system, no pensions, nothing - but Pasok helped change everything.
The party has been in and out of power in that time but they are the party for poorer people and people have to remember that.
If Pasok return to power, then, at least in the world's eyes, there will be a degree of stability ”
Yes there has been an awful lot of corruption with the main political parties with people giving away jobs to their friends but I truly feel that Pasok has been made a scapegoat over the past few years for problems.
The former Prime Minister George Papandreou of the Pasok party helped us greatly. He negotiated with the "troika" [the European Union, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund] but has become the biggest scapegoat of them all.
I am going to vote for Pasok but I can cope if New Democracy get into power - my biggest concern is leaving the eurozone. If we go back to the drachma, it will be a bad step for Greece.
Life is terrible here; there are no jobs and low wages. But if Pasok return to power, then, at least in the world's eyes, there will be a degree of stability.
The worst situation would be if the far left are voted in.
Vicky Eleftheriadou, Serres
I voted for the left-wing party Syriza in the last election and I will probably vote for them again, although I'm still not 100% sure.
Traditionally, my family and I have always voted for the Socialists [but] I have been disappointed by the Pasok party, which has performed abysmally.
With regards to the EU and leaving the euro, I'm not fazed by the ultimatum given to us by our neighbours. Europe has more to lose if they let Greece leave.
I'm 29 years old and highly qualified but even with a master's degree I have not been able to find work.
I have been searching for employment for over a year. The jobless rate in our region is at least 35% if not more.
I used to live in the UK and interned for the Labour party, but I moved to Greece to help my family when the crisis hit.
My savings are nearly all gone. I would like to return to the UK to look for work but I cannot afford the costs of relocating.
We don't have anything to lose by voting for left-wing [Syriza leader] Alexis Tsipras”
Trying to find work in Athens is unrealistic. My friends have tried and given up. It is too expensive to live there.
I am not eligible for free health care insurance. My father who has worked all his life is now seriously ill. He requires constant care and his doctors have advised him to seek private treatment. He has used all his savings to pay for his own operations.
The situation has been worsened by the fact that his pension allowance has been halved.
The suicide rate is an example of how bad things have become in Serres. At least four people have died. I knew one of them.
We don't have anything to lose by voting for left-wing [Syriza leader] Alexis Tsipras. Things might get worse but we are prepared to take the risk. You have to keep the faith.
Phoebus Giannopoulos, Nafpaktos
I voted for the Pirate Party of Greece in the last round of elections and I will vote for them again. My mother is also a Pirate party candidate and will be running for office this year.
I am not worried that Greece will be jettisoned out of the euro. I think we can untangle our finances if we choose to revert back to the drachma.
I also think other countries in similar financial difficulties such as Spain or Italy may look at our example and follow us.
Ordinary people need proper representation. We have not had this for a long time”
If we don't implode and manage to bounce back after recession, then there is a strong possibility that their economies will recover too.
I'm 26 years old and I've just embarked on 14 months of military service which concludes at the end of this year.
After my stint I hope to continue my studies in Denmark and complete a master's degree in cognitive science. Then I want to start a consulting firm.
I am very disillusioned with the main political parties. They write manifestos without consulting the electorate and before you know it for the next four years we are lumbered with their policies, some of them very ineffectual.
The previous administration was also guilty of condoning cronyism and allowing corruption to become rampant.
I want to cast my vote for the Pirate party because they believe in working with voters, discussing the issues and then voting on them.
It's about direct democracy. Ordinary people need proper representation. We have not had this for a long time.
