The flood of polls that has swept the Greek public space has proved the recent feeling that the early parliamentary elections on 20 September will be a real derby between the main players, SYRIZA and New Democracy.

The new field of confrontation is the main slogan "Just forward!" that appeared on the panel behind the presidium of the Pan-Hellenic meeting of SYRIZA last Saturday.

The election headquarters of the blue responded with a message that accused the radical left of stealing their slogan "Greece goes forward." "The collapse of SYRIZA has damaged the communication team of the party. The next step would be to rewrite the election programme of Mr. Lafazanis," reads the statement of New Democracy.

"The slogan 'Greece goes forward' was already used by the leader of New Democracy in his speech in Halkida. It was present in the first election spots of New Democracy that were disseminated on social networks," state the headquarters of the blue.

SYRIZA replied laconically to the criticism. "We wonder how exactly New Democracy will persuade Greek citizens to entrust their future to it," was the reaction of the press office of the radical left.

The newly opened front of controversy between the two parties has provoked reactions on social networks. "The fact that so many parties will participate in the elections with the slogan 'go forward' indicates how far back we have got," says analyst Kostis Lympouridis.
