One week before the parliamentary elections and left-wing SYRIZA leads in all polls published on Sunday newspapers with difference rate to Nea Dimokratia being 3.1% – 5%. To Potami seems to secure the third position, while Golden Dawn seems to move downwards. To Kinima, the party of former prime minister George Papandreou is contantly at 2.7% and most likely will not manage to pass the 3% threshold and enter the Parliament.
Poll conducted by KAPA Research for To Vima
Nea Dimokratia 28.1%
To Potami 5.4%
Golden Dawn 4.7%
Independent Greeks 2.7%
To Kinima 2.7%
Other party 3.6%
Undecided 9.6% (via enikos.gr)
Poll conducted by Public Issue for AvgiOnline (SYRIZA’s newspaper)
Nea Dimokratia 30.5%
To Potami 7%
Golden Dawn 6.5%
Independent Greeks 3%
To Kinima 2%
Other party 2%
According to calculations, SYRIZA would get 144 seats in the Parliament. That is 7 seats less than the 151 needed to form a majority government.
I sincerely hope that the 9% presently said to be undecided and the 30.5% said to be still supporting Nea Dimokratia give serious thought to the fact that at the start of this totally UNDEMOCRATIC ‘austerity’ program Greece’s debt stood at 140% of GPD – and after all of the pain and misery ITS NOW WORSE !!!!
1 and a half million now unemployed
40% youth unemployment
mass emigration seeking employment
Massive cuts in social welfare
SRYRIZA is a chance to say NO MORE.
Greek people have been bled dry
