Greek Election: Conservative ND Heads in Four Opinion Polls

Posted by in Politics

Four public opinion polls published in the Sunday press show a slight priority for conservative Nea Dimocratia with the difference to left-wing SYRIZA being between 1.1 and 5.7 percentage points. With the exception of Communist KKE that suffers a decline, the other parties do not change their rankings. The new elections coalition between DRASI and CREATION AGAIN of pro-bailout and rather anti-immigrant stance has chance to enter the Greece parliament as the eighth party. 

The polls are based on the question of “voting intention”

Poll conducted by ALCO for newspaper PROTO THEMA:

ND 25.6% – SYRIZA 22.9% – PASOK 14% – INDEPENDENT GREEKS 6.4% – KKE 5.6% – CHRYSI AVGI 4.6% -DEMOCRATIC LEFT 4.6%

42% say Samaras better secures Greece in Europe, while only 24% say Tsipras.

Poll conducted by KAPA RESEARCH for newspaper TO VIMA:

ND 25.8% – SYRIZA 20.1% – PASOK 13% – INDEPENDENT GREEKS 5.4% – KKE 6.3% – CHRYSI AVGI 5.2% -DEMOCRATIC LEFT 5.3%

Poll conducted by MARC for newspaper ETHNOS:

ND 25.2% – SYRIZA 23.2% – PASOK 12.6% – INDEPENDENT GREEKS 6.6% – KKE 4.5% – CHRYSI AVGI 4.4% -DEMOCRATIC LEFT 5.3% – DRASI/CREATION AGAIN 3.8%

64.8% of the respondents estimates that Greece should proceed to a tough re-negotiation fo the loan agreement (MoU)

21.1% wants cancellation of the MoU

Poll conducted by MRB for newspaper REAL NEWS:

ND 23.3% – SYRIZA 22.2% – PASOK 13.8% – INDEPENDENT GREEKS 7% – KKE 5% – CHRYSI AVGI 4% -DEMOCRATIC LEFT 5.7%

87.8% wants Greece to remain in the euro zone.

I tend to believe that a coalition between pro-bailout ND and anti-bailout SYRIZA could form a balanced government for Greece given the current circumstances and conditions. The one party would watch over the other and prevent grave mistakes or push for some fair reforms and why not? Some changes for the MoU. One think is for sure: as it is, it doesn’t work and harsh austerity is no solution. No jobs, no income = no taxes, no isnurance contributions.

Let’s not cheat ourselves: One small step from the lenders, one big step for the Euro zone.
