  • [01] Polls Give the Socialists the Lead

    A survey conducted by MARC and appeared in Ethnos tis Kyriakis Sunday paper gives a 5.1% lead to the Socialists (PASOK) over the ruling Conservatives (ND). The gap between the two parties reduces to 3.7% when it comes to the elections for the European Parliament. Particularly, according to the MARC poll, ND gets 29.7%, PASOK receives 34.8%, KKE (Greek Communist Party) garners 7.5%, SYRIZA (Coalition of the Radical Left) trails with 6.5%, LAOS (Popular Orthodox Rally) gets 4.1% and the Greens 2.9%.

    An MRB survey commissioned for Eleftheros Typos tis Kyriakis Sunday paper, 83.8% of the respondents who voted for ND believe that Kostas Karamanlis should not step down, while 54.8% of the voters in total do not wish him to see him quit.

    The poll has also shown that 38.9% of the people surveyed believe that Kostas Karamanlis is the most suitable person for the Premiership, while 35.2% opt for Socialist leader George Papandreou. Six in ten voters dismiss a change of leadership in ND before the forthcoming general elections as a negative development.

    "Kostas Karamanlis is a major chapter of our political life and of ND. He is a statesman who took momentous decisions for the country's future. Because he is a statesman who is dedicated to his duty," commented Interior Minister Prokopis Pavlopoulos.

    "Kostas Karamanlis will keep leading the conservative party for many years. And we will be by his side. Karamanlis guarantees the party's unity and no one and nothing will going to disturb it," argued Health Minister Dimitris Avramopoulos.

    "Several people may have been a disappointment, but Kostas Karamanlis is not one of them. The majority of the people looks to him. He is our strong weapon. The majority of our voters wants us to be by Karamanlis' side," ND secretary Lefteris Zagoritis stressed.

    "Each vote taken from PASOK is but a sing of support to ND's policy. This vote will be like a referendum," commented Socialist deputy Dimitris Reppas.
