Fist Poll after Train collision: Causes, vote intention, ND losses

The first public opinion poll after the deadly train collision on February 28 was published by ANT1 TV on Thursday. Overwhelming majority of citizens want thorough investigation of the crash, while ruling New Democracy is suffering vote intention losses.

In voting intention, the conservative Mitsotakis government New Democracy has lost 2.9% but still leads ahead left-wing SYRIZA.

At the same time, citizens want a thorough investigation into the train collision that killed 57 people and they don’t buy the initial government narrative of “human error” only.
