Tsipras regains slim Greece vote lead with 48 hours to go

Syriza leader Alexis Tsipras greets his supporters during the party's main pre-election rally in central Athens on September 18, 2015Greece’s election hung on a knife-edge Saturday as radical former premier Alexis Tsipras retook a slight lead in the final hours of a tight race against the conservatives for the helm of government. As thousands of mostly young supporters turned out on a hot Athens night for the last campaign rally of his Syriza party, polls gave the boyish charismatic leader a slim lead over the conservative New Democracy party led by Vangelis Meimarakis. A September 20 victory for Syriza would deliver “a key message for Europe”, Tsipras said referring to the refugee crisis and to EU economic woes.
