The majority of Greek policemen in Athens voted for extreme-right Chrysi Avgi (Golden Dawn). “More than one out of two policemen voted for Chrysi Avgi” reports Proto Thema two days after June 17/2012 elections, describing the finding as “impressive”. These findings emerged after analyzing elections results in voting centres of Greece’ capital Athens. Especially in the district of Ampelokipoi and suburb of Kaisariani, where approximately 5,000 policemen casted their votes.
In these voting centres, Chrysi Avgi got its highest rates from 17.2% up to 23.04%.
In Athens districts with high percentage of illegal immigrants like Agios Panteleimonas and Kypseli, Chrysi Avgi got rates from 15% up to 18%.
Policemen who casted their votes in favor of Chrysi Avgi work at the General Police Department of Attica, the motorbiked units DIAS, the Security Department and else where, notes Proto Thema.
