Poll: ND leads with 3.5% towards SYRIZA. However….

In a public opinion polls published over the weekend, main opposition party, conservative New Democracy leads with 3.5% towards governing left-wing SYRIZA. However, in polls conducted even a month ago, ND used to lead with 7%. At the same time, 32.4% of respondents declare that they do not know which party they would vote for if elections were to be held today.

Poll Kapa Research:

SYRIZA 17.3%

ND 20.8%

Golden Dawn 5.9%

KKE 5.1%

PASOK/DemocraticLeft 5%

Centrists’ Union 3.1%

Independent Greeks (ANEL) 2.3%

Potami 2%

What is interesting to note is the SYRIZA coalition partner ANEL does not seem to pass the 3% threshold in all polls conducted in 2016.

42.8% of respondents said that they will vote for another party than the one they voted in September 2015 elections.

56.2% of respondents declare that they do not want early elections.

New Democracy has been insisting on “early elections” claiming that the government was incapable of solving Greece’s problems and it should resign.

A so-called civic movement calls for a mass anti-government protest on June 15th under the slogan “Resign“. While the movement claims to be “impartial” and without ideological “color” initiators of the action are members of PASOK, while ND officials said that they will join the protest.
