Greeks face stark choice at ballot box

Rival parties disagree on how to solve debt crisis but neither expected to win enough seats to rule alone.

    Greek voters return to the polls on Sunday, after a previous election in May failed to produce a government.

    The result could determine whether Greece sticks to the terms of its international bailout, and remains in the eurozone.

    Polls suggest the two main parties are running neck and neck, and neither is likely to win enough seats to rule alone.

    On the one hand conservative New Democracy is experienced but also accused of years of mismanagement. On the other, the left-wing Syriza bloc is an untarnished opposition, but lacking any experience in government.

    How the two parties are going to reconcile contradictory positions is anybody's guess - and the prospect of failure carries the risk of bankruptcy.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
