ATHENS (Reuters) - Greece’s anti-bailout Syriza party has widened its lead over the ruling conservatives to 6.7 percentage points from six points previously, a survey showed on Friday, two days before a national election.

The survey by GPO for Mega TV showed Syriza taking 33.4 percent of the vote, ahead of Prime Minister Antonis Samaras’ New Democracy party which would take 26.7 percent of the vote.
