Greece's pro-bailout conservatives are building support ahead of a repeat election next month. It could determine whether the country stays in the euro. The poll by RASS for the Metro newspaper shows:
- New Democracy leading with 23.6% of the vote
- Leftist SYRIZA (which opposes an international bailout) second with 21.4%
- Socialist PASOK, which also backs the bailout, remains in third place with 13.1%
The German Government came under more pressure today to consider sharing the debts of struggling eurozone countries.
The chances of any decisions being made tonight are slim. How can a decision be made when you don't know how it is going to play out?
The Prime Minister arrived in Brussels tonight determined to have, as he put it, a 'decisive plan for Greece'.
