  • [01] Opinion poll gives SYRIZA lead over New Democracy

    Main opposition SYRIZA was given a 6.5 percentage point lead over ruling coalition leader New Democracy in a nationwide GPO opinion poll for MEGA TV, carried out on October 9-13.

    Specifically, in reply to the question "Which party would you vote for if elections were held on Sunday?", SYRIZA took the lead with 26.7 pct and ND came second with 20.2 pct. Support for the remaining parties was as follows: Potami – 6 pct, Golden Dawn - 5.7 pct, Communist Party of Greece (KKE) - 5.7 pct, PASOK - 4 pct and Independent Greeks – 3 pct. A further 4.7 pct supported 'other parties' while 18.2 pct of participants were "undecided."

    In reply as to who is the most suitable for prime minister, current premier Antonis Samaras took the lead with 43.1 pct, with SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras getting 37.2 pct. A 17.9 pct of respondents said "none of the two."

    On the Greek President's election, 55.7 pct said that parties and deputies should choose the right person, while 40.3 pct responded that any candidacy should be voted against and the country should hold again general elections.
