    ATHENS: Anti-austerity parties are expected to be among the beneficiaries when angry Greeks head to the ballot box for European Parliament elections this month. After years of swingeing austerity cuts that have pushed Greece’s unemployment to a record high, cut the country’s economic output by a quarter, and pushed huge tracts of the population into poverty, many Greek voters are expected to vent their anger in the elections on May 25. “Europe has no idea what is happening here, this disaster, with children dying of hunger and homeless people eating out of the garbage,” said Dimitris, a 42-year-old taxi driver, who plans to vote for the anti-European Union Communist party.
