Eight in 10 Greeks want government to pursue Germany over WWII reparation claims

Eight in 10 Greeks believe the government should pursue Germany over the outstanding issue of Second World War reparations, according to a new opinion poll.

The survey carried out by Marc for Alpha TV found that almost 90 percent of respondents felt that Greece should seek damages from Germany.

The German government has played down the issue but the Greek Foreign Ministry insisted last week that Athens does not consider the matter to have been settled.

A Finance Ministry committee has been investigating whether Greece has a rightful claim to receive money from Germany but the results of its prove have been kept secret.

A recent report in To Vima suggested that Greeces claim amounted to as much as 162 billion euros after interest had been added. This relates to reparations for infrastructure and personal damage as well as the repayment of a loan Greece was forced to provide to the Nazi regime.

The March poll also found that more than 40 percent of Greeks think that Greece should leave the euro if it cannot improve the terms of its bailout agreement.

In terms of political ratings, the survey put SYRIZA narrowly ahead of New Democracy. The leftists garnered 22.3 percent, the conservatives 22.1 percent.

Golden Dawn was third with 9.7 percent, followed by Independent Greeks with 5.9 and PASOK with 5.4. Democratic Left gathered 4.4 percent.
