SYRIZA maintains narrow lead over New Democracy, latest polls show

Two opinion polls whose results were made public on January 7 2015 showed that SYRIZA maintained a lead over New Democracy (ND). However, the difference between the two parties has narrowed to just more than three per cent.

A poll by GPO for Mega TV put SYRIZA at 28.5 per cent, ahead of ND with 25.3 per cent, while another poll by Alco for To Pontiki put the main opposition party on 33.8 per cent and ND on 30.5 per cent.

Both polls show that Greece’s next parliament is likely to consist of six parties with the Independent Greeks and Democratic Left parties not making the three per cent threshold. The new party of ex-PM George Papandreou, Socialist Democrat Movement is also below three per cent.
