  • [01] Armed burglary at Glyfada city hall

    Three gunmen burglarised the city hall of the eastern Athens coastal town of Glyfada before dawn on Sunday.

    The burglars forced the city hall guard, at gunpoint, to take them to the strongbox on the third floor of the municipal building, where they tied up the guard and opened the strongbox with a blow torch, and fled with approximately 40 thousand euros.

    The guard managed to untie himself about an hour later and alerted police, who are investigating the incident.

    [02] Three opinion polls on post-elections developments

    The results of three new opinion polls on developments after last week's general elections were made public on Sunday.

    In a Public Issue poll conducted on behalf of Kathimerini newspaper and private Skai television station appearing on Sunday, 83 percent of respondents were positively inclined towards the new PASOK government, while 70 percent of New Democracy (ND) voters had a positive opinion of the new Cabinet.

    A RealNews newspaper poll on who should be the next ND leader, former foreign minister Dora Bakoyannis led with 30 percent of the respondents, followed by former culture minister Antonis Samaras with 15.7 percent, former defence minister Vangelis Meimarakis with 14.7 percent, former health minister Dimitris Avramopoulos with 14.1 percent, Thessaloniki prefect Panagiotis Psomiadis with 9.7 percent, former education minister Aris Spiliotopoulos with 7.5 percent, and former transport minister Evrypides Stylianidis with 1.9 percent.

    The same percentages were received by the same faces on the question of who is capable of leading ND back to power.

    In another opinion poll, conducted nationwide by the weekly newspaper Free Sunday, to the question on who the respondents desired to be elected as the new ND president, 29.9 percent preferred Bakoyannis, against 19.4 percent for Samaras, 12.7 percent for Avramopoulos, 10.5 percent for Psomiadis, and 9.3 percent for Spiliotopoulos, while 18.1 percent declined to answer.
