    Tsipras called on voters to cast their ballots for his party, stressing: "At this hour, the strength is not in the hands of the mechanisms. At this hour the strength is in the hands of the many, who did not have power until now. It is in the hands of the youth, the unemployed, the low salary and pension earners".
