  • [01] POLL: Opposition ousted in 2004 ballot due to performance in gov't

    The main opposition Panhellenic Socialist Movement (PASOK) lost national elections in 2004 due to its performance in government and not the election campaign it waged, according to advance release of an opinion poll due for publication on Sunday.

    In the survey commissioned by the Proto Thema newspaper, 61.3% of respondents believed the government's performance was to blame for the party's election defeat against 24.4% who saw poor handling of the pre-election period as the reason for the failure to retain government.

    The party's current leader, George Papandreou, gained 45.3% of the popularity vote against his predecessor and former premier, Costas Simitis, who scored 36.2%, according to the nationwide poll conducted by Alco.

    PASOK had suffered a last-minute leadership change when Simitis, then prime minister, announced he was resigning as head of the party and would not remain as head of government if the party won last year's general election.

    Papandreou become leader of the party that his father, the late Andreas Papandreou, had founded three decades ago soon before the March poll.
