It is not just the poor and unemployed who are angry and demanding change. In
a large tent housing the Syriza campaign headquarters in Koumoundourou Square in
the centre of Athens, a party worker called Alexis says that he himself is not
badly off. A 64 year old air traffic controller, he has seen his monthly salary
cut from 5,500 to 4,500 (4,100 to 3,360), and he pays higher taxes. He is more
upset by the fact that no new air traffic controllers have been appointed for
years and, as a result, he and his colleagues get only a few days` holiday a
year. He said that crucial to Syriza doing even better in the election than it
did in the European parliamentary elections last year was the introduction of a
new property tax. Not only did it seem to be yet one more particularly onerous
tax and Greeks have long seen buying property as their ultimate insurance
but there seemed to be no light at the end of the tunnel.
These elections are a measure of the failure of the EU, which has sought to
bludgeon Greeks into policies that they see as being against their interests and
which, in any case, they had not assented to. The supervision of the troika
provokes the same sort of ill feeling that countries feel for colonial rulers,
regardless of the justifiability of the changes they want to introduce.
Even those jobs that do exist are often temporary or poorly paid. Manya
Kavvathea is 27 years old and was trained as a historian. She is getting by on
short term jobs doing marketing surveys. Many of her friends have emigrated
"to Holland, France and Germany". If there are few jobs in Athens,
there are even fewer in her home town of Nafolio, a pretty tourist resort where
"the only employment is waitressing in the cafs".
There has also been a certain amount of hypocrisy involved since, at the time
of the previous general election, the EU was seeking to keep Syriza out of power
while simultaneously claiming that radical reform of the old corrupt clientist
Greek political system would be implemented by the parties that had created and
still benefited from it. If the EU really does want to change Greece, they need
a party with the same commitment.
Syriza may not win an absolute majority in parliament and will be reliant on
smaller parties. It will also be constrained by a commitment to balanced budgets
and securing a 7.2bn loan tranche, as well negotiating on the 320bn debt. But
the early elections called by Mr Samaras and the likely victory of Syriza are
strong pieces of evidence that the sort of reforms the EU has been trying to
implement in return for its money are vastly unpopular within Greece, where they
are seen as a humiliating symbol of servitude. It is also obvious that Mr
Tsipras is right in saying that the Greek debt is "not just unbearable, it
objectively cannot be repaid".
Lena Ekonomigou, a 63 year old unemployed cleaning lady who used to clean the
tax offices in the Ministry of Finance, recalls how she "used to earn 325 a
month, but two years ago I was sacked. We were laid off as if we were garbage.
That is why I believe in Alexis ." Lena did not wholly explain how she has
survived, but says "the church helps" and she made a little money
looking after a woman who has difficulty walking. She says: "All I really
want is to get my job back."
He may well get his wish by the time polls close at 7pm today.
Yanis is hoping that Syriza, the party of the radical left, will win today`s
election and reduce both mass poverty and the general sense of hopelessness.
"I don`t think that tomorrow will bring green valleys and golden
cows," says Yanis. But he does hope, with Syrizia in power, to see some
Samaras` Syriza opponents are promising relief for the homeless (AP)
Meanwhile, he has a list of reforms, such as giving free electricity to people
whose power has been cut off, providing food stamps for children, healthcare to
the uninsured, and some form of accommodation for the homeless, as well as
raising the minimum wage from under 500 a month to 750.
The mystery in Greece is how so many people manage to survive without jobs or
unemployment benefit. The answer is that most rely on their families. Yanis
says: "The family is what counts here that is what saves us. If we
followed the English model, half the people would be in the street."
Leaving aside the questionable implication that family bonds don`t count for
much in England, the Greek state has shown itself largely incapable of coping
with the needs of the 26 per cent of the population who are out of work or the
three million who live below the poverty line.

Fear of the unknown and of a final rupture with the EU won the elections for
Mr Samaras in 2012. But today Greeks are weary of attempts to frighten them into
accepting a status quo that has brought misery to so many and shows no signs of
ending. The very fact that the general elections are being held early is a
consequence of Mr Samaras`s inability to muster enough parliamentary support to
elect a new president last month. This was a result of his failure to win
satisfactory compromises over the bailout, austerity measures and debt write
offs, as well as to get the much detested International Monetary Fund removed
from the "troika" of the European Central Bank (ECB), the IMF and the
European Commission which supervises Greece`s adherence to its agreement with
the EU. With the troika seen by Greeks, with some reason, as the equivalent of
overseers in the workhouse in Oliver Twist, Mr Samaras appears as their willing
???and send a defiant message to the EU
Mr Samaras appears to have failed to convince voters that he had no choice but
to bow to the EU`s demands and that putting Syriza into power is "national
suicide". At the last government rally, inside a sports stadium built for
the Olympics in 2004, Mr Samaras told a crowd of wildly cheering supporters
waving a forest of white and blue Greek flags that "the opposition say that
rather than a bad deal the EU] it is better to die". He added, for good
measure, that Syriza is going to disarm the police, let a flood of immigrants
into Greece and turn the country into a Mediterranean version of North Korea.
The mostly middle aged crowd applauded, loudly chanting: "Greece! Greece!
The Greek radical left is likely to defeat the centre right governing party in
today`s elections, challenging the EU over repayment of Greece`s 240bn debt and
enforced reduction of living standards. Opinion polls show that, in the past few
days, the left wing Syriza party, led by Alexis Tsipras, has been increasing its
lead over the party of the Prime Minister, Antonis Samaras, who for two years
has imposed austerity on Greece in return for loans from the EU. Unfortunately
for him, the Greeks haven`t felt that they were benefiting from their
Syriza supporters brush aside talk of a run on the banks on Monday. While Mr
Samaras has warned his supporters that "liquidity can be cut off and it
will only take days for Greece to be asphyxiated", this no longer has the
resonance it once had. Syriza may be radical, but it has been doing its best not
to sound revolutionary and to avoid frightening middle class voters or the
international markets. In any case, sympathetic commentary by financial experts
on debt forgiveness and better terms for payment of existing debt is becoming
much more the norm. The eurozone has a bailout fund, and the ECB will buy the
bonds of countries in trouble.
