The Greek Coalition of the Radical Left, known as Syriza, which opposes a credit deal with the EU and IMF, is once again in the lead in the election race, according to an opinion poll conducted by the VPRC company for the Epikera magazine.

The Greek Coalition of the Radical Left, known as Syriza, which opposes a credit deal with the EU and IMF, is once again in the lead in the election race, according to an opinion poll conducted by the VPRC company for the Epikera magazine.

If the elections took place next Sunday, Syriza would get 30 percent of the vote compared to 26.5 percent for the conservative New Democracy party which supports the credit agreement.

Syriza is competing New Democracy to become the biggest party in parliament in June 17 elections that could send further shock waves through Europe.

Last week’s opinion polls put Syriza behind the conservatives by between 1.3 and 5.7 percentage points.

Syriza wants to halt austerity programs, restore social spending and continue to receive the payments from the euro zone and the IMF to keep the countries from bankruptcy.
