Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This is, IMHO, the most important election news today:

News bites @ 10 | Athens News

4. KAMMENOS EYES SYRIZA The Independent Greeks are not prepared to discuss any "renegotiation" of the austerity conditions outlined in the memorandum, party leader Panos Kammenos underlined at a Thursday press conference in the Zappeio Mansion. He also ruled out any cooperation New Democracy and Pasok, saying they were essentially "one and the same". He did not, however, rule out cooperation with Syriza, under certain conditions.

Although SYRIZA talks about a leftist coalition, it appears to me that the rhetoric of Independent Greeks is the only one compatible with aiming for a coalition (or at least cooperation) with a SYRIZA government.

In other news, Greek voters are blackmailed with the threat of Euro exit while the BuBa head protests blackmail with the threat of contagion by threatening blackmail with the bailout programme...
