The fight for power in Greece enters its final hours, with Prime Minister Antonis Samaras making a last-ditch appeal to voters as he tries to defy opinion polls showing a victory for his anti-austerity opponent.

The month-long election campaign wraps up on Friday when Samaras addresses a rally of his New Democracy party at 6 p.m. in Athens. Alexis Tsipras, who leads the opposition Syriza group, will speak on the island of Crete in the evening. The nationwide ballot is on Jan. 25.
