Although Greece finally exited six years of recession last year there are fears, then, that a Syriza win could severely damage the country's fledgling economic recovery.
Speaking to CNBC from Athens, Georgikopoulos said that Syriza's economic policy could be determined by either the more radical or moderate elements within the party, though he hoped that the latter would prevail.
"I hope the moderates will be in charge and they will think that the economy cannot sustain more volatility and turbulence." He added that Syriza should agree it economic program with the troika of international lenders – the European Commission, European Central Bank and International Monetary Fund – and how they will keep Greece's economy on track.
"I hope a new government will think twice about the future of Greece - and the future of Greece is in the euro zone."
Not everyone is so keen to keep Greece in the euro zone at all costs.
One of Germany's leading economists and the head of the influential Ifo economic research institute in Germany, Hans Werner-Sinn, said on Sunday that Greece needed a devaluation of the currency, a temporary Greek exit and a haircut on its debts.
Calling for an international debt conference on Greece, Sinn said in a statement on Sunday that for Greece "to get back on its feet economically and become competitive again" "this calls for a devaluation of its currency, thus a temporary euro exit, which, in turn, calls for a haircut," he said.
Greece will never be in a position to repay its debts in any case and its government is already facing the threat of another insolvency, just like back in 2012, Sinn warned in the statement.
