ATHENS (Reuters) - Greece's radical leftist Syriza party is maintaining a steady lead of over 3 percentage points ahead of the ruling conservatives 11 days before parliamentary elections on Jan. 25, an opinion poll showed on Wednesday.

The poll by Alco for To Pontiki newspaper showed the anti-bailout Syriza would get 32.4 percent of the vote versus 28.9 percent for Prime Minister Antonis Samaras's New Democracy conservatives - a lead of 3.5 percentage points.

A previous Alco survey showed Syriza leading with a margin of 3.4 percentage points.
