    ANA-MPA -- A slight lead for main opposition Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) in the upcoming European elections - but with current government leaders New Democracy (ND) easing ahead in the case of national elections - was recorded in an opinion poll conducted by ALCO and published in the newspaper "Proto Thema" on Saturday.

    SYRIZA came first in voter preferences with a 0.5 pct lead over ND for the European elections and a 22.3 pct share of the vote. Voters gave ND a 0.7 pct lead and 22.2 pct of the vote, however, when asked what they would vote in a general election.

    The results of the poll concerning voter intentions in the case of general elections were as follows: ND (22.2 pct), SYRIZA (21.5 pct), Golden Dawn (6.7 pct), Potami (5.3 pct), Elia (4.9 pct), Communist Party of Greece (4.7 pct), Independent Greeks (3.6 pct), Democratic Left (2.5 pct), Union for the Homeland and the People (1 pct), other parties (5.2 pct), blank vote (2.4 pct), abstention (4.5 pct), undecided (15.5 pct).

    The poll results concerning voter intentions in European and local government elections this May were as follows: SYRIZA (22.3 pct), ND (21.8 pct), Potami (7.2 pct), Golden Dawn (7 pct), Communist Party of Greece (5 pct), Elia (4.8 pct), Independent Greeks (3.4 pct), Democratic Left (2.2 pct), Union for the Homeland and the People (1.1 pct), Ecologists (0.9 pct), ANTARSYA (0.9 pct), National Front (0.7 pct), Popular Orthodox Rally (0.5 pct), other parties (2.4 pct), blank vote (3.3 pct), abstention (5.2 pct), undecided (11.3 pct).

    Of those taking part in the poll, 41 pct said a criterion for their vote in the European elections will be preserving political stability, while 42 pct said their intention would be to overturn the government.

    Regarding who they would trust as prime minister, 32 pct replied current premier Antonis Samaras, 20 pct chose SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras and 42 pct said they trusted no one. On recent developments in the economy, 29 pct said these vindicated Samaras, 21 pct said they vindicated Tsipras and 50 pct said they did not know.
