The German government expects Greece to stick to the terms of its EU/IMF bailout agreement after a Jan. 25 election and a possible change of government in Athens, a spokesman for Chancellor Angela Merkel said Sunday.However, spokesman Georg Streiter declined to comment on a report in Der Spiegel magazine that said Merkel's chancellery had shifted its view and now believed the eurozone would be able to cope with a Greek exit if necessary.Greece's woes have also created a political headache for Merkel by helping to boost support for a new right-wing party, Alternative fuer Deutschland, which taps into German voters' unease over the costs of eurozone bailouts.
