Angela Merkel has said she will keep up the pressure on Greece to carry out reforms after scoring a historic victory in the German federal elections on Sunday.

“We should not stop exercising pressure for the agreed reforms to be carried out,” said Merkel after a major election win for her CDU party and its Bavarian partner, the CSU.

Merkel also insisted that she told the truth about Greece’s predicament and the possible need for a third bailout, which was brought up during the election campaign by Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble.
