Alexis Tsipras looked set to return to power in Greece as his SYRIZA party headed for an election victory for the second time in eight months, an exit poll showed.

The 41-year-old former prime minister’s Coalition of the Radical Left was leading with as much as 34 percent of the vote compared with as much as 32.5 percent for New Democracy, headed by Evangelos Meimarakis, 61, according to the survey broadcast by the main Greek television channels. The far-right Golden Dawn was in third place with between 6.5 and 8 percent.
