European unease that Greece may falter on its bailout promises after elections Sunday looks misplaced, at least initially, as its pressing need for money means that whoever wins is likely to toe the line.Germany stressed Wednesday that the new government would be bound by all the terms and timeframes in the bailout agreement.A successful review would release a further $3 billion euros from the bailout fund, expected to cover debt repayment commitments and arrears to suppliers run up by the Greek state.Greece is also likely to cooperate with a European Central Bank health check of its banks, which came close to collapse before the bailout deal was struck.Other parts of the program might be diluted as both Tsipras and Meimarakis are likely to seek agreement from the creditors to budget measures cushioning the blow for Greeks from the bailout stipulations.
