Official projections in Greece's election show the conservative New Democracy party coming in first. The pro-bailout party could have enough support to form a pro-bailout coalition with Pasok to keep the country in the euro zone.
Preliminary exit polls are not good for the pro-austerity, keep Greece in the Eurozone at any cost coalition as 3 parties vie for top post
An exit poll commissioned by Greek media shows three parties are vying for the top spot in the country's critical parliamentary elections, with no definitive front-runner and none gaining enough votes to form a government.
Athens (AFP) - With Greece's snap elections on Sunday, the top two parties are neck and neck in the polls. Analysts say a full return to power for the leftist Syriza party, while still possible, is unlikely.Following are three next-day scenarios:
Greeks are heading to the polls for the third time in eight months today. But with the economy on course to collapse under the weight of austerity measures, economists are warning that any new government will still need a miracle to prosper in the eurozone.
Greece’s radical former prime minister Alexis Tsipras will ask voters for a “second chance” tomorrow as a disillusioned Greek electorate heads to the polls for the third time in nine months.
Just two months after Tsipras and his Left-wing Syriza party were forced to capitulate humiliatingly to Greece’s eurozone creditors, the 41-year-old finds himself neck-and-neck in the polls with the conservative New Democracy party.
ATHENS, Greece (AP) — The radical left Syriza party of former prime minister Alexis Tsipras is pulling ahead of the conservative main opposition party in the run-up to Greece's snap general election on Sept. 20, according to an opinion poll published Friday.The poll conducted for the left-leaning Efimerida ton Syntakton newspaper showed Syriza at 28.5 percent compared to 23.5 percent for the center-right New Democracy party. Nazi-inspired Golden Dawn was in third place with 6.5 percent, while 17.5 percent of respondents were undecided or would not answer.
Athens (AFP) - Greece votes Sunday in a snap general election that could bring the radical left Syriza party to power and pose the most severe challenge yet to austerity policies in struggling eurozone countries.
