European shares were set to open higher on Monday, with futures for the Euro STOXX 50 equity index, Germany’s DAX and France’s CAC up by between 0.2 per cent and 0.6 per cent at 0707 GMT.

A presidential vote in Greece will decide whether the country goes to snap elections, which could bring the leftwing Syriza party to power and derail an international bailout. Voting is due to start at midday (1000 GMT), with the result likely around an hour later.
