ATHENS, July 7 (MENA) - Greeks were voting Sunday in the first parliamentary election since their country emerged from three successive international bailouts, ABC news reported.

The vote was called three months earlier than originally planned after left-wing Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras suffered a stinging defeat in European and local elections in May and early June.

Opinion polls have suggested Greeks are set to defy the recent European trend of increasing support for populist parties, with conservative opposition party leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis a clear favorite to win.
