Greek leftists Syriza keep poll lead as Sunday election looms

ATHENS (Reuters) - Greece's anti-bailout leftists Syriza held their lead over the ruling Conservatives in two of the final opinion polls to be published before Sunday's snap election, although one survey showed the gap widening as another showed it narrowing slightly.

Syriza, which wants to renegotiate a chunk of Greece's debt and cancel austerity measures, would garner 32.9 percent of the vote ahead of Prime Minister Antonis Samaras' New Democracy party on 26.3 percent according to an Alco poll, a gap of 6.6 points.
