Greeks hold little hope for country’s economy


Seven in 10 Greeks are pessimistic about the country’s economic prospects while only a minority believe that the SYRIZA-led administration will manage to end foreign supervision of the debt-hit country, a new study has shown.

According to the study carried out by experts at the University of Macedonia for Skai TV, 21.5 percent said that the economic situation will remain the same, while only 6.5 percent were optimistic that things will improve.

Meanwhile, 73.5 percent said that the government will not manage to end austerity.

Questioned about the upcoming election for a new New Democracy leader, most of the respondents expressed support for interim party chief Evangelos Meimakarakis.

Apostolos Tzitzikostas, Kyriakos Mitsotakis and Adonis Georgiadis followed in popularity.
