Does the center right in Greece appeal to the country's youth?

Does the centre right in Greece appeal to the youth in the country?

Well that remains to be seen. There's an election on Sunday, but if you look at the opinion polls the center right Nea Dimokratia is well in the lead and it looks like a new government. The interesting thing is that all of these sort of extremist and populist parties to the right and the left are doing fairly badly. So this looks like being the first truly post-populist election of Europe.

Why can't the EU agree on a division of the bloc's top jobs?

This is a once in a five year experience. It's all of the leadership positions up until 2024. 28 countries. There are different political parties. There is a gender balance. It's a difficult equation. And that means that it does take some time. I remember times when it took several weeks - they've been at it for a couple of days. And I would expect them to formalize it within the next say 48 hours but it's going to be a difficult compromise. And the nature of the politics of Europe is compromise. East, west, north, south. Centre right. Centre left. Gender balance, youth, whatever. It take some time, but I think we'll have a result within say 48 hours.

Empathy and listening are key to establishing harmonious relationships, as demonstrated by Callista Azogu, GM of Human Resources & Organization for Nigerian Agip Oil Company (NAOC), an Eni subsidiary in Abuja. "To build trust is very difficult. To destroy it is very easy," says Callista, whose busy days involve everything from personnel issues to union relationships. She sees great potential for her native Nigeria not only because of the country's natural resources, but because of its vibrant and creative people.

For the world's wealthiest nations, including the United States, the rollout of COVID-19 vaccine has been rocky, to say the least. And as a result, much of the developing world will have to wait even longer for their turn. Part of the challenge, World Bank President David Malpass says, is that "advanced economies have reserved a lot of the vaccine doses." Malpass sat down with Ian Bremmer recently to talk about what his organization is doing to try to keep millions around the world from slipping deeper into poverty during the pandemic. Their conversation was part of the latest episode of GZERO World.

He joins Ian Bremmer on GZERO World to talk about how his organization is trying to keep the developing world from slipping further into poverty in the wake of a once-in-a-century pandemic.

Joe Biden wants to move into the White House, but the coast isn't clear. He may need some bleach.
