Greek poll front-runner vows immigrant expulsions

Associated Press Published: May 3, 2012

ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greece's conservative leader has vowed to intensify a program to expel illegal immigrants, while speaking at his main campaign rally in Athens ahead of Sunday's general elections.

The head of the center-right New Democracy party, Antonis Samaras, told supporters Thursday that illegal immigrants had become "tyrants of Greek society."

Samaras, who joined the majority Socialists in a coalition for the past six months, is leading in opinion polls but is facing a strong challenge from rightist splinter parties and a fascist party that have campaigned heavily on illegal immigration in the crisis-hit country.
