Greek conservatives promise lower taxes
The Associated Press
Greece's conservative party leader Antonis Samaras speaks during the presentation of the New Democracy economic program at the Commercial and Industrial Chamber of Athens on Thursday, May 31, 2012. Samaras said his party promises no new taxes and no new across-the-board cuts if elected in the country's repeat polls next month.
The debt-strapped country will hold its second election in six weeks on June 17. It was called after the center-right New Democracy party won a May 6 poll but was unable to form a coalition government.
The conservatives are roughly level with the leftwing anti-bailout Syriza party in recent opinion polls.
