Greece’s Main Opposition Ahead of SYRIZA in Latest Poll



Greece’s main opposition New Democracy (ND) is leading governing SYRIZA by 8.8 percent in a poll released on Wednesday by Star TV.

The MRB poll shows ND at 30.9 percent followed by SYRIZA at 22.1 percent.

The poll was conducted after Alexis Tsipras and his rival Kyriakos Mitsotakis outlined their respective economic policies at the Thessaloniki International Fair earlier in September.

Centrist Movement for Change is in third place with 6.5 percent of the voters preferences, followed by extreme right Golden Dawn at 6 percent.

The Communist Party with 5.9 percent is the only other party that is above the 3 percent threshold that guarantees parliamentary representation.
