Syriza stretches poll lead as Greek election campaign ends (Helena Smith, The Guardian) The polls are already open for three hours as this is written but it will be a long day before any sense of how the final vote in the historic Greek election will turn out. According to The Guardian, last minute opinion polling showed the leftist party Syriza with a 6% lead over the incumbent conservative New Democracy Party, headed by Prime Minister Antonis Samaras. Leading the Syriza party is a young (age 41) Alexis Tsipras, a former Communist youth member. If Syriza fails to gain at least 101 seats in their victory (the winning party gets an additional 50 at-large seats) they will need to form a coalition to gain a majority in the 300 seat parliament. Most likely would be the centrist Potami (River) Party which is in a battle for third place in the balloting with the extreme right-wing Golden Dawn. The only other possible partner would be the once-leading opposition party, the PASOK Socialists, who now seem doomed to run a poor fifth.
