Greece Poll: Syriza Vows To End ‘Humiliation’

The leader of Greece’s Syriza party has vowed to end the country’s “national humiliation” as opinion polls show the party’s lead is widening ahead of Sunday’s election.

Alexis Tsipras told thousands gathered in Athens that an outright victory for the leftist party would allow Greece to turn its back on four years of austerity.

“On Monday, national humiliation will be over. We will finish with orders from abroad,” Mr Tsipras told the election rally.

“We are asking for a first chance for Syriza. It might be the last chance for Greece.”

The Syriza party’s platform of pledging to overturn austerity cuts and demand European debt write-offs has unnerved financial markets.
