Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney says he will not run for the White House again in 2016, ending weeks of intense speculation that he would mount a third campaignFormer Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney said Friday he will not run for the White House again in 2016, ending weeks of intense speculation that he would mount a third campaign. "After putting considerable thought into making another run for president, I've decided it is best to give other leaders in the party the opportunity to become our next nominee," Romney said during a conference call with supporters. On January 9, he told donors he remained interested in the White House. He subsequently gave two speeches, including one to the Republican National Committee, laying out his vision for themes to embrace should Republicans want to regain the White House after eight years of President Barack Obama.

The Syriza party of Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, which swept to power last Sunday, once promised to take on shipowners and their generous tax allowances. "We are here to solve problems, not to create new ones," said Economy Minister George Stathakis, who oversees the shipping portfolio. "There will be dialogue, discussion, and we will look for the best possible solution," Stathakis, an economist who comes from a shipping family, said during a handover ceremony at the shipping ministry.
