Pre-election

Supporters of Leader of the Greek conservative party New Democracy Antonis Samaras wave flags during a pre-election speech in Athens. Crunch elections in Greece on May 6 may not produce a government with a strong enough mandate to push through yet more austerity cuts to satisfy Athens' international creditors. Sunday's election is expected to see Greek voters, many of them fed up with grinding austerity drives, vote for parties that say they would scrap deals with the EU and IMF.
