  • [01] Latest opinion polls ahead of Euro-election

  • [01] Latest opinion polls ahead of Euro-election

    No less than five opinion polls were published in a same number of newspapers on Sunday, most showing varying leads -- between 2.8 to 5.5 percentage points -- for main opposition PASOK over ruling New Democracy (ND) party heading into the June 7 European Parliament elections.

    Specifically, one poll gives PASOK 26.5 percent of respondents' preference to 21 percent for ND, with both figures dramatically lower than what the two major parties usually garner in elections. In terms of smaller parties, 6 percent of respondents picked the Communist Party of Greece (KKE); 5.5 percent for the Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) and 3 percent for the Popular Orthodox Rally (LA.OS). Additionally, 19 percent of respondents said they would not vote in the June. The poll was conducted by the firm Public Issue and published in the Sunday edition of "Kathimerini".

    Another poll gave PASOK a 4.5-percentage point lead over ND, 37 to 32.5 percent. SYRIZA was given 9 percent in this poll; 8 percent for KKE and 5 percent for LA.OS. Interestingly, the hereunto unknown Greens-Ecology party garnered an impressive 5 percent.

    This poll was published by the firm VPRC for the Sunday edition of the newspaper "Eleftherotypia".

    Finally, PASOK's lead stands at 2.8 percentage points -- marginally down from the last poll by the same firm -- over ND, while both parties show decreasing tallies. PASOK is preferred by 30.5 percent of respondents to 27.7 percent for ND; KKE with 8.1; 7.7 for SYRIZA; 5.3 for LA.OS and 3.6 for the Greens.

    The last poll was published in the weekly "Paron" and conducted by the firm RASS.
