Greece is gearing up for an election on Sunday to determine who will govern the country for the next four years.

This is as the opposition remains optimistic about their chances of victory despite the polls indicating that the ruling New Democracy (ND) party is likely to win.

In recent weeks, surveys have pointed to a rebound in the popularity of the ND, which saw a downward trend in the aftermath of a deadly train accident.

The party's leader and incumbent prime minister has asked for a solid mandate to form a single-party government, emphasizing prosperity, stability, and safety.

The main opposition party, SYRIZA, has built its election campaign on highlighting corruption and wiretapping scandals, accusing the government of damaging the rule of law and democracy.

They vow to restore democracy and institutional integrity in Greece.
