Syriza Out Front in Greece

In Greece, anti-austerity party Syriza appears to have widened its lead over government parties. According to a 22 January poll, Syriza is projected to have 31.5% of the vote, against 28% for prime minister Antonis Samaras’s New Democracy. Much worse is expected of the socialist party Pasok, which has tumbled to 6% from 44% in 2009 and now stands in fourth place along with the communist party KKE. The far-right Golden Dawn party remains the country’s third largest party with 10%.
