Alexis Tsipras has been sworn in as Prime Minister of Greece in a ceremony at Athens' Presidential palace. The Syriza leader has formed a coalition government with the right-wing Independent Greeks to form a functional majority.
The United States says it will "continue to support" efforts to strengthen the Greek economy after left-wing party Syriza formed a coalition with the right-wing Independent Greeks.
In a statement, the White House Press Secretary said: "We congratulate Greece on successfully completing its parliamentary elections, and we look forward to working closely with its next government.
"The Greek people have taken many difficult but important steps to lay the groundwork for economic recovery."
"As a longstanding friend and ally, the United States will continue to support their efforts and those of the international community to strengthen the foundation for Greece’s long-term prosperity," the statement added.

The appointment of first woman bishop Rev Libby Lane continues to divide opinion.
But her colleagues say the 48-year-old mother-of-two can handle it - just like she did when she became one of the first women priests 21 years ago.
ITV News Reporter Martha Fairlie reports:
We are right outside the Presidential palace, where Alexis Tsipras just walked in for his meeting with the President, at which he will be asked to form a government.
Having done that deal with coalition partners this morning, that formality will be completed. There will then be a swearing in ceremony - conducted by the Archbishop Ieronymos of Athens.
Tsipras has asked that it not be religious in nature as he is an atheist, making him the first to take a purely political oath as leader.
He will then go to a memorial to victims of the Nazis during World War Two, before getting on with the business of running the country - which will start later this afternoon.
