In this Wednesday April 25, 2012 photo photo Ilias Kassidiaris, an agriculturist and candidate of the extreme far-right Golden Dawn party poses next a party flag _ styled on Nazi banners but with an ancient Greek motif in the center _ and a statuette of Alexander the Great at the party headquarters, in Athens. Reeling from a vicious financial crisis that has cost them pensions and jobs, Greeks have been turning away in droves from the mainstream politicians they feel have let them down. Firmly on the fringe of the right since it first appeared 20 years ago, Golden Dawn garnered a meager 0.23 percent in the 2009 elections. But its popularity has shot up over the past few months and support stood at about 5 percent in recent opinion polls, well above the 3 percent threshold needed to enter parliament.(AP Photo/Petros Giannakouris) less
