이번주 일요일에 그리스 총선이 있는데, 과연 정권을 잡고 있는 보수당이 사회당에게 표를 얼마나 잃을지 주목된다. 보수당이 연금, 교육 정책의 개혁을 주장하지만 주지하다시피, 요번 대형 화재가 선거의 변수가 될 듯. ㅋ

With the fires out, Greeks prepare for Sunday's election
ATHENS (AP) — Thousands of Greeks streamed back to parental towns and villages Saturday, the eve of elections, as they prepared to cast ballots following a campaign largely overshadowed by last month's wildfires that killed more than 65 people.
More than 9.8 million people are eligible to vote Sunday, out of a population of 11.4 million, in Greece's 12th parliamentary election since democracy was restored in 1974 following a military dictatorship. Nearly 500,000 are first-time voters.
Saturday was expected to be a quieter day following a tumultuous month-long campaign, capped Friday evening with mass rallies by the two major parties — the governing conservatives under Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis, who swept to power in 2004 as Greece's youngest premier, and the Socialists, led by former Foreign Minister George Papandreou.
In keeping with tradition, conservative New Democracy held their final rally in Athens before tens of thousands, while Socialist PASOK rallied the flag-waving faithful in the western city of Patras.
Targeting wavering voters, Karamanlis called for a decisive result, for "a government that gains strength from a powerful public mandate."
