  • [01] PASOK criticises opinion poll

  • [01] PASOK criticises opinion poll

    Main opposition PASOK on Wednesday sharply criticised a most recent opinion poll giving rival New Democracy, the ruling party, a 2-point lead, 35.2 percent to 33.2 percent for PASOK.

    PASOK secretary Nikos Athanassakis questioned whether the specific opinion poll was aware of the ongoing reality of the wildfires, while saying the results appeared "outrageous" and "incomprehensible".

    The PASOK cadre also took exception with results showing an almost identical negative opinion of both the ruling party and the main opposition.

    In terms of other parties, the Communist Party (KKE) was favored by 7.3 percent of respondents; the Coalition of the Left by 4.4 percent and the out-of-Parliament LA.OS party by 3.9 percent of respondents.

    In a later reaction, the MRB firm, which conducted the poll for a local Athens television station, said that "it was the inalienable right of every political party or citizen not to accept results of an opinion poll. However, they should avoid disputing the professionalism and objectivity of respected polling firms because they disagree with the results".

    The firm also referred to "slanderous statements" by the PASOK official.
