Greece’s anti-austerity SYRIZA party is leading in opinion polls days ahead of a general election on Sunday. The country’s massive €317 billion debt remains a key point of disaccord among experts and politicians.
Recent polls show SYRIZA is leading among voters and is three percent ahead of the ruling New Democracy party, according to a survey published in the To Vima newspaper on Sunday.
Should the leftist Coalition of the Radical Left Alliance (SYRIZA) win the election on January 25, it will abandon austerity measures in favor of its own program to repay the national debt, said the party’s leader Alexis Tsipras in an interview with local Antenna TV channel.
