Greek presidential election

Dec 17, 2014, 09:49 AM, Athens, Attica, Greece

#Greece might soon be heading for another general election in which the radical opposition party Syriza could come to power. The Greek parliament will hold a first round of voting today in the country's Presidential election. If parliament fails to approve the government's candidate after three rounds of voting, a general election will automatically be held. And #Syriza, which wants part of Greece's international debt written off, is leading in the opinion polls. The BBC's Europe Correspondent Chris Morris reports from #Athens for @BBCr4Today.
